A collaborative project between Center for Bio-Image Informatics, Marine Science Institute at UCSB, NOAA and Greenpeace has acquired and analyzed 23 hours of HD underwater video by identifying all species present in the videos and producing co-occurrence statistics. A complete dataset of annotated sampled frames is published by the Center on our Bisque server. A paper have been published in PLoS ONE about this effort: "Structure-Forming Corals and Sponges and Their Use as Fish Habitat in Bering Sea Submarine Canyons"
