Sealife.is is a collection of photographs and video clips by the renowned diver Erlendur Bogason, who brings us a new view of life under the sea.

Of all invertebrates, the tunicates (urochordata) are the closest relatives to humans. There is no resemblance in adult tunicates. However, the larvae stage is very unlike the adult stage and looks like a tadpole. Tunicates are in fact in the same phyla as we are in, chordata. Tunicates can be both sessile and planktonic.
