Nudibranchs Galore at Gulen Dive Resort


The Nudibranch Safari at Gulen Dive Resort was very successful, and I have added lots of new images to the database.

For a full weekend, alltogether 12 people were occupied searching for and photo- graphing nudibranchs at the Gulen Dive Resort house reef.

A staggering 41 species turned up during the weekend - out of a total of ninety-something found in Norwegian waters. Many of them have now been added to the image database.

Everyone participating did their best in finding rare species, photographing them in situ and collecting them for preservation.

Below are some examples (article continues after the images):

We had scientists and nudibranch experts Jussi Evertsen and Torkild Bakken from the University in Trondheim joining us for the weekend. They have been running a nudibranch project documenting as many Norwegian species as possible since 1997.

Even the experts found nudibranchs they haven't seen before, as did naturally everyone else. I have added lots of images from the Nudibranch Safari to the database, and more will follow.

Please click the 'See Images' button at the bottom of the page to se all the images.

I believe everyone had a fun learning experience, got some good photographs and generally had a good time. I certainly enjoyed it!

Thank you also to Santa Maria, who sponsored us with a delicious taco and tex-mex dinner which went well with spicy nudibranchs (no, we didn't eat them!).
