This presentation will reveal some of the fascinating mid-ocean creatures that inhabit
the ocean off of the Kona coast of Hawaii. The images and information were gathered using
a specialized mode of SCUBA called blue-water diving. Drifting over 3,000 meters of water
during the day and the night has resulted in encounters with small, slow-swimming
gelatinous zooplankton (as pictured here), much larger, fast oceanic predators (sharks),
and the very large cetaceans.
