Rhodolith Reef, Kongsfjord, Finnmark, Northern Norway

A current exposed rocky wall in Kongsfjorden. This is a typical vertical surface (at a depth of 5–17 metres) on one of the frequently visited dive sites with encrusting coralline algae, sea dahlias (Urtician sp.) and plumose anemone (Metriduim senile), sponges, sea urchins and juvenile king crabs (Paralithodes camtchaticus) hiding underneath the anemones.
