The underwater scenes include sponges (Porifera), rocky outcrops, sand bottom, sea urchin, starfish, and sand dollars (Echinoderm), fish, and corals. Join a diver from the Buccaneer Pipeline evaluation team to visit the shallow marine habitats to the west of Tarpon Springs, Florida. The video extracts were made available through the cooperation of Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Running time for each video is about 2 minutes.
