An aggregation of vestimentiferan tubeworms (Lamellibrachia sp.)

An aggregation of vestimentiferan tubeworms (Lamellibrachia sp.). Such aggregations provide habitat for smaller animals such as the small white anemones covering the tube worm tubes, and the shrimps Alvinocaris muricola. The tiny white spots all around the tubeworms are copepods, tiny swimming crustaceans.
