An unidentified trawler shipwreck rests on Stellwagen Bank in 105-110 feet of water. The trawler is broken into four pieces; its pilothouse, hull, stern, and net reel. Smaller hull fragments surround the site. As the shipwreck sits on a mostly featureless sand bottom, it attracts schools of cod and pollock that hide within its structure. The identity of this trawler has not been determined and the sanctuary is seeking help from anyone who might know its name. The trawler lies within the Outbound Lane of the Port of Bostons Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS). Vessel operators should follow all regulations pertaining to the safe operation of vessels in a TSS.

Sea moths, flying gurnards, blennies and gobies. Part 8 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

This video features some of the unusual fish found in the Lembeh Strait. First we encounter a pair of short dragonfish, Eurypegasus draconis, a type of seamoth. Seamoths are monogamous and bond closely with their mate.

We then meet the oriental flying gurnard. The juvenile oriental flying gurnard deters predators by appearing as large as it can. The false eyespots on its pectoral fins make it appear like a much larger fish from above.

The starry blenny, Salarias ramosus, is a type of combtooth blenny, of which there are some 400 species. By far the largest combtooth blenny is the hairtail blenny, Xiphasia setifer, also known as a snake blenny. It burrows its body into the sand, much like a snake eel.

Gobies represent the world's largest fish family, and one of the most varied. The yellow pygmy goby, Lubricogobius exiguus, traditionally seeks refuge in natural shelters such as empty shells. Here we meet a pair living in a discarded bottle.

Finally we encounter a toothy goby, Pleurosicya mossambica, a type of ghost goby, living on a sea pen, Pteroeides sp.. The sea pen receives neither benefit nor harm from the relationship, but provides the goby with shelter and a good spot to feed on plankton passing by in the current.

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage.
