This footage was captured by the remotely operated sub, Jason, about 2400 metres deep off south-eastern Australia. It shows a deep-water shrimp, small gorgonian fan (aka sea whip or sea fan) and a small sea star, and was taken during a Caltech/CSIRO expedition aboard the US research vessel RV Thomas G Thompson, which was funded by the NSF in America, and CSIRO, the Environment Department and the Marine Biodiversity Hub in Australia.
