This dive transected a large portion of off-mound habitat and some on-mound habitat in the end. The low profile, off mound habitat had less than 10% live Lophelia pertusa coverage. A few species were seen in the off-mound area. The most common fish species was Laemonema barbatulum, and the most common invertebrate was Plumarella sp. (both on- and off-mound). Urchins and anemones were common. Galatheids were not present off-mound. In the last 30 minutes of the dive, the sub transected the top of a mound where L.pertusa was of higher relief and a greater percentage was alive (>25%). Galatheid crabs, brissingid sea stars, and sponges were common on top of the mound. Other fish species observed included Conger oceanicus, Nezumia spp., Beryx decadactylus, and a few scorpaenids. Sessile invertebrates observed included barrel sponges, glass sponges, Madrepora oculata, and a few gorgonians.

Very few fish were observed on this dive and were represented by very few individuals. The most common fish was Laemonema melanurum in all habitats observed. A few Nezumia spp. and squalid sharks were observed on mound. Fenestraja plutonia was observed on the soft substrate rubble mix. In the soft substrate rubble mix Phykalleia spp. was abundant in patches. Mound substrate of rock ledge and rubble was covered with abundant mixed fauna. Hard corals were represented by individuals of Lophelia pertusa, Madrepora oculata, Enallopsammia profunda, and numerous cup corals. Gorgonians were abundant but too small to be properly identified.
