Battery Park City Cove Video




Large sponges from the genus Microciona, can be seen in this video, perhaps it’s the species Microciona prolifera, the red beard sponge. Microciona species are in the family Microcionidae and are usually found in intertidal zones on rocks. Small round comb jelly of the species Mnemiopsis leidyi floats by (42 seconds in). At the end of the video, a lone cunner (Tautogolabrus adspersus) can be seen swimming by a red sponge.
