Periphylla article in Nurkowanie


Periphylla article in Nurkowanie, Poland




The Polish dive magazine, Nurkowanie, have printed a small article featuring my Periphylla (crown jelly) images in their June issue.


The images was shot on a trip with Gulen Dive Resort to Lurefjorden north of Bergen last winter.

The Periphylla periphylla, or Crown jelly, is a deep-water species normally dwelling at 700-3000 meters of depth.

Once a year, in certain Norwegian fjords, they venture to the surface at night to breed. When they congregate like this they can be seen in huge numbers. The diving has to be done in the middle of the night, in the middle of winter, and it should be at least 300 meters deep (although the dives rarely are deeper than 30 meters).

The Periphylla is also known as the "Alien of the Deep".

For those of you who read polish, the article is also available online at the Nurkowanie homepage.



WANT TO DIVE WITH THE CROWN JELLY?
Then get in touch with Gulen Dive Resort - they're the only dive centre in the world to offer you this unique opportunity! The diving is done only once a year, at the very end of January.


Diving with these creatures (which reach about a meter across, arms included) is a truly awe-inspiring experience, unlike anything else above or below the surface. If the tides, currents, moon and time all coincide, one can be lucky enough to encounter thousands of them on one single dive...
