Sponge life on Rathlin’s North Wall

There really is a great variety of non fish aquatic life on Rathlin. It was reported recently in various publications that there was something like 70 new species of sponge identified during a survey of the water surrounding Rathlin Island. Some of these can be seen on Waterworld a programme broadcast on BBC last Autumn. Not sure if this footage shows any or not. There is some Grey elephant sponge though.

How did you guess? Well actually that is the sound, well know to all divers, and the only thing you here throughout the whole dive, the sound of your bubbles being exhaled out of your regulator second stage exhaust….sham!
