A five days fieldtrip to Egersund (Rogaland, Norway) organized within the framework of the Sea Slugs of Southern Norway project brought together colleges from the Natural History Museum of Bergen, the University of Harvard, the Studentenes Undervannsklubb Bergen, and the local much acclaimed Norwegian underwater photographer and naturalist Erling Svensen, author of several best-seller books about the marine life of Norwegian waters. In total 36 species have been collected and photographed which represents nearly 30% of Norwegian sea slug diversity.
