    #HappyHalloween A pair of anemonefish (Amphiprion bicinctus) take shelter in a pumpkin-shaped sea anemone on a coral reef in the Red Sea. Despite their seemingly frightful home, anemonefish are immune to the stings of anemones and, in return for a safe place to live, sometimes protect their hosts from predators. Their symbiotic relationship is just one of many found among organisms in the ocean that turn an otherwise harsh and unforgiving environment into a comfortable home.

    Researchers collect coral samples from a large reef in the waters off Mexico''s Yucatan Peninsula. Corals build their skeletons over time from calcium carbonate and other substances in seawater. WHOI scientists carefully analyze such samples to obtain information about past climate conditions, the evolution of marine life, possible future sea level rises, and the flow of groundwater from land into the coastal ocean.

    These Basket stars were collected on a cruise in Barrow Canyon, Alaska. Basket stars are a type of brittle star that generally live in a deep sea environment and have a series of complexly branched arms which are used to catch plankton.
