Scuba Pictures From Dominica -Dangleben’s Pinnacles

Published by at 7:20 pm under Uncategorized

Among southern Dominican dive sites, Dangleben’s Pinnacles are a trio of reefs that can be visited numerous times without ever seeing the same areas.
Pairs of butterfly fish cruise in front of massive sponges on the walls of Dominica’s reefs.

Emerging from sponges are colonial yellow polyps. Probably a parazoanthus species, these are more reliant on capturing suspended organic matter than are their true zoanthid relatives in other parts of the Caribbean.

Another organism that is familiar to scuba divers on the reefs of Dominica is the tube worm. Like the parazoanthus anemones and sponges, tubeworms consume suspended organic particles as their primary food source.
