Marine Fauna Field Course - 3
Day 3: Sponge Day!!!
Identified a hydrazoa (beautiful!) and watched it 'attack' my pointer. I also filmed a barnacle - may sound like a boring thing to take a video of, but they're actually kind of cool to watch. (See below)
After lunch the sponge dredge came in, and we took a look at the different sponges with help from the local sponge expert.

Tonight's dinner was skolest (a very ugly fish) that was caught on the Masfjorden cruise by the other group; served with potatoes and carrots. Very tasty!
Also, winter is on its way...it was so cold when I went running today that I could see my breath as soon as I stepped out the door! That's what happens at 60°N.
