This rare footage was filmed during the Bioluminescence 2009: Living Light on the Deep Sea Floor Expedition. The specimen swims directly into the Johnson Sea-Link grab sampler during an Educator-at-Seas first submersible dive experience. We also see how a swimming sea cucumber has evolved from benthic animals that feed upon the sediment in the deep-sea. They are capable of swimming over the sea floor sediment until a suitable spot to feed can be located. Video courtesy of Bioluminescence Team 2009, NOAA-OER.
