And in the northern seas...

Off Newfoundland, a joint Canadian-Spanish expedition is turning up more new species (they don't know how many yet) of sponges, corals, and other marine invertebrates. The expedition's submersible is probing the bottom at 3,000 meters. Expedition scientist Ellen Kenchington says, "It's been really spectacular. It's really changing our perception of the diversity that's out there."
