1st Place Marine Life Behavior

Galice Hoarau



Galice Hoarau won a 7/8 night dive cruise aboard the Coralia Liveaboard in Raja Ampat or Komodo!


The Story: A Wolfish (Anarhichas lupus) pair at the end of the arctic summer. The female lay a ball of eggs in a small cave in the autumn before leaving the nest, leaving the male to watch over them. The male will take care of them until the end of spring when they hatch. Wolfish are very important species in Norwegian fjords, keeping the sea urchins from overgrazing the kelp forest. Unfortunately, although they are overexploited, they don’t have any protection in Norway.
