Tease your visual sense with a tantalizing glimpse of the naturally inspiring beauty of one of the world's most remote and unexlored undersea environments, Alaska's Aleutian Islands. This 8 x 10-inch print makes a great gift, or hang it on your wall! The image is from a collection of photographs taken in the Aleutians by scuba-diving marine biologists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the first people to ever see and photograph the undersea world where they dove.
The candy stripe shrimp (Lebbeus grandimanus) is usually associated with the crimson anemone (Cribrinopsis fernaldi), shown here. This distinctive shrimp is identifiable by its brilliant stripes and occurs from the Bering Sea to Puget Sound at depths of 20–590 feet (6–180 meters). Kismaliuk Bay, Unalaska Island.
