The DEEPEND timeline was conceived by world-class photographer Danté Fenolio as a platform through which the DEEPEND team could convey the biodiversity that they have encountered in the Gulf of Mexico to the general public. So much amazing biodiversity turned up in the trawling nets that we figured there had to be a way to show it all off. The timeline allowed for a progression through the different cruise trawls and it allowed for a photographic display that we don't think has been developed or matched by any other deep sea biological survey. There are images of some exceptionally rare deep water species and of some more common species. The net result is a celebration of the wildlife living in the water column of the incredibly diverse Gulf of Mexico.
