Saba coral reef, new wildlife discoveries


This 20 February 2018 deep sea video shows conger eels, sharks and other wildlife near Saba island in the Caribbean.

The Dutch ship Pelagia is doing research about the coral reefs of the Saba Bank. Near the island, there are pollution problems. However, the ship also discovered a so far unknown reef which is in good condition.

This 2014 video features a closer inspection of some of the coral reef fauna found at Saba.

This video is about the 2018 Pelagia research.
