That's exactly what I was thinking ; the whole scene of the sunken ship with
its fish inhabitants was reminiscent of an ocean wreck and I thought that it
was a neat variation on the usual ocean shipwreck thing. I would like to see
more video footage of Great Lakes aquatic life ; I heard that there's
supposed to be freshwater sponges in there as well as freshwater jellyfish
and freshwater feather duster worms.Seeing a spoonhead and deepwater sculpin
would be pretty cool, too.
The only things I know about Lake Baikal is that it has freshwater seals and
it's supposed to have some interesting sculpin species.
