Alaskan Skeleton Shrimp

No – these were not photographed in Alaska, but I guess that is where these Alaskan Skeleton Shrimp (Caprella alaskana) were originally identified. I’d seen them on a number of dives in Puget Sound, but one dive in particular we came across a buoy line that was absolutely swarming with them – including crawling over a bunch of squid eggs also attached to the line.
