My doctoral project aims to narrow the knowledge gap on arctic and boreal deep-sea sponge communities, their biodiversity, ecology, and distribution patterns in the North Atlantic. I analyse video and imagery footage collected by the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUVs), Hugin 1000, and remotely operated vehicle (ROV), Ægir 6000, to improve our understanding of the community composition and biodiversity of deep-sea sponge grounds whilst investigating their spatial patterns and habitat extent. My research focuses on sponge grounds present around Norway, the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge, and eastern Canada to help build a better comprehension on the different sponge ground types, primary structure-forming sponge species, and associated demersal fish and invertebrate species.
