Asian Swamp Eels: Predation on Juvenile Largemouth Bass

Non-native or introduced populations of Asian Swamp Eels (family: Synbranchidae) exist in the wild in parts of Florida, Georgia, and Hawaii. This video shows predatory behavior of captive individuals. Swamp eels shown feeding in this video include two different species, the first (tentatively identified as Monopterus albus) is a wild-caught specimen taken from Florida

Chemo Seep Biotope

Areas of active, if subdued, hydrocarbon seeps are notably devoid of large sessile invertebrates. A fluffy gray biofilm coats the underlying rock, dotted with small white patches of the chemo-seep-associated bacteria Beggatoia.

Chemo Tubeworms

Viosca Knoll is an elevated salt dome with dormant and active chemo-seeps. Where hydrocarbons are actively escaping from the substrate, dense clusters of tightly entwined vestimentiferan tubeworms grow. As the submersible approaches, it disturbs a Blackbelly Rosefish (Helicolenus dactylopterus), and a Conger Eel (Conger oceanicus).

Making a burrow in the stony base of Lophelia bushes, a 1.5 m long Conger Eel (Conger oceanicus) emerges from its hiding place to patrol its territory. It preys upon smaller fishes.
