Peniagone Sea cucumber
Large numbers of benthopelagic sea cucumbers. These holothurians swim above the surface of the sediment and settle on the mud to feed. In similar previous records (Barnes 1976), Peniagone diaphana has been recorded at 2000 m water depth off southern California. The dense aggregations extended to 70 m above the seabed.
