Sea-bed photographs (benthos) from the Weddell Sea along two ROV profiles during Polarstern cruise ANT-XIII/3, supplement to: Gutt, Julian (2002): The Antarctic ice shelf: an extreme habitat for notothenioid fish. Polar Biology, 25(4), 320-322Julian Gutt
Young specimens of cf. Pagothenia borchgrevinki were observed for the first time to cling to the subsurface of the marginal ice shelf in Drescher Inlet, southeastern Weddell Sea. Along an approximately 40-m-long videotransect at 80 m water depth, the abundance was roughly estimated to be 7 individuals per 10 m**2. This behaviour is interpreted to represent the most advanced adaptation to ice as a microhabitat for Antarctic fish.
