Bathymetric distribution of some benthic and benthopelagic species attracted to baited cameras and traps in the deep eastern Mediterranean
A series of baited camera and trap experiments in the eastern Mediterranean Sea between 1500 and 4264 m depth attracted a variety of opportunistic scavengers, with species composition changing withExpand

Depth zonation and latitudinal distribution of deep-sea scavenging demersal fishes of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, 42 to 53°N
Scavenging fishes of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) were investigated using a baited autonomous lander equipped with a time-lapse camera between 924 and 3420 m water depth along 3 east-west transectsExpand

Consumption of large bathyal food fall, a six month study in the NE Atlantic
We deployed 2 porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) carcasses at bathyal depth (2555 to 2710 m) in the Porcupine Seabight, NE Atlantic for periods of 1 wk and 6 mo respectively. Consumption rates of 0.085Expand

In situ comparison of activity in two deep-sea scavenging fishes occupying different depth zones
The activity of two scavenging deep–sea fishes occupying the same niche in overlapping depth zones were compared by in situ measurements of swimming speeds, tail–beat frequencies and by arrival timeExpand

Assessment of stone crab (Lithodidae) density on the South Georgia slope using baited video cameras
minutes on three occasions. Current speed was used to predict the area of the odour plume, and by integrating the area to account for scavenger speed the effective area of the odour plume wasExpand

Photographic and acoustic tracking observations of the behaviour of the grenadier Coryphaenoides (Nematonurus) armatus the eel Synaphobranchus bathybius, and other abyssal demersal fish in the North
Using an autonomous free-fall vehicle (AU-DOS), observations were made of demersal fish attracted to baits and baited acoustic transmitters at two stations in the North Atlantic Ocean. A comparisonExpand

Naturally occurring bioluminescence on the deep-sea floor
Abstract In the deep sea, bioluminescence that is not stimulated by the observer is estimated to be extremely low. Observations of naturally occurring bioluminescence, using an ultra-low-light videoExpand

Liparid and macrourid fishes of the hadal zone: in situ observations of activity and feeding behaviour
Using baited camera landers, the first images of living fishes were recorded in the hadal zone (6000–11 000 m) in the Pacific Ocean. The widespread abyssal macrourid Coryphaenoides yaquinae wasExpand

Baited camera observations of deep-sea demersal fishes of the northeast Atlantic Ocean at 15–28°N off West Africa
Abstract. For the first time the autonomous free-fall vehicle AUDOS was deployed at low latitudes in the northeast Atlantic Ocean. Observations of deep demersal fishes attracted to baited camerasExpand
