Part 1 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

In this video I introduce the Lembeh Strait's location off North Sulawesi, in Indonesia, at the heart of the Coral Triangle. The Coral Triangle has been designated on account of its extraordinary marine biodiversity, and the Lembeh Strait hosts a huge variety of marine critters on its seabed of dark, volcanic sand and silt. The type of exploration it offers has become known as "muck diving". The conditions and cryptic critters of the Lembeh Strait contrast with the clear blue water and coral reefs of dive locations such as the nearby Bunaken National Park. 

I introduce some of the sessile animals that live in the Lembeh Strait, including corals and sea squirts, otherwise known as tunicates or ascidians, enjoying the currents at dive sites such as Critter Hunt.

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..

The music tracks are "Mountain Breeze (pad)" by Purple Planet (http://www.purple-planet.com) and "Arrival of the Broken Kings" by Klangachse (http://klangachse.de).

Thanks to the staff and keen-eyed divemasters of Two Fish Divers (http://www.twofishdivers.com), for accommodation, diving services and critter-spotting.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights and a flat port. A Century +3.5 diopter was used for the most of the macro footage.
