Underwater Volcanoes – Oases of the Sea | Free Documentary Nature

Countless marine animals frolic on the steep slopes of underwater volcanoes. In many cases, several are rare species not found elsewhere. This is in part due to the fact that plankton clings to the wall and provides the fish with food in abundance. This documentary shows several of these oases and also examines the impact dive tourism has and whether preventive measures can help to maintain them.
Nature and underwater filmmaker Rolf Möltgen undertakes dives into the mysterious underwater mountain landscapes with marine scientists from all corners of the globe. This journey takes us to Mexico, to snappers, white-tip reef sharks, Galapagos sharks and giant mantas. We visit the Maldives, Colombia and Costa Rica, where the team documents rare species such as deep sea burbots, small tooth sand tiger and dogfish sharks, in depths of more than 300 metres.
The eerie underwater mountain world proves: everyone plays a part in the network of life. Thanks to consistent protective regulations, it has been possible to retain the underwater diversity – especially in the unique oases of the high seas.

Marine exploitation has torn a hole in the net but some of the holes are being mended. Oceanic oasis like the ones we visit, led by Marine biologist Zapata Lopez, are leading to new discoveries and new hope to restore the delicate balance of marine life. With the help of underwater volcanoes 🌋

Adoro todos os documentários que sejam da vida selvagem marinha, especialmente quando aparecem tubarões-baleia, todo tipo de tubarões e para não esquecer as raias-mantas, obrigado e forte Abraço de 🇵🇹.

Wow. Totally floored – I love to see shark footage like this. No need to queue up the ominous and suspenseful music or focus on bloody kills, just respect for one of the world’s finest animals! Plus I learned a new shark! I know what with there being so many hundreds of species that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but sharks have been my #1 favorite animal since before I was even in preschool….and I’m not young.

Fascinating, as always with this channel!! Paul Bendelow is simply wonderful! Excellent tone, inflections, & descriptions are simple & diverse..would make a wonderful successor to Attenborough (Legendary of course, he’s got nothing left to prove..he has enriched all our lives forever). When he gracefully steps dwn or retires, it’d be nice to see Bendelow take over th reins..always incredible cinematography with this group of filmmakers…thank you for another marvelous show!! 🌋🐟🐚🌴

Very good documentary! I do agree that the title did make me think it was more to do with volcanoes, but still enjoyed the content. Thanks for the upload 🙂👍

Wow. Every bit of this was absolutely stunning. I had no idea there were so many types of sharks and admittedly I did not know what a manta was nor have I ever seen a sailfish. Thank you for uploading this wonderful documentary. I love watching these while I eat dinner. The perfect way to wind down and at the same time get super educated on stuff.

Wow this amazing I’d like to see more of these are really informative and also perfect for me to share my love for sea life

I hope, with the help of wonderful documentaries like this, scientists will be able to discover and learn more about the deep and vast ocean before it’s too late.
