From plankton to cod to whales, the Gulf of St. Lawrence harbors a profusion of shimmering life. A pair of Atlantic wolffish—named for their fangs—cozy up in a den in Bonne Bay. The female departs after laying eggs, leaving their care to the male. Image © David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes/National Geographic
A lion’s mane jellyfish drifts in Bonne Bay. The species can grow to eight feet across.
A lone harp seal hugs thinning ice near the Madeleine Islands. Pups spend their first month on an ice floe, a precarious nursery as ice shrinks in the gulf.
The images are from the May issue of National Geographic magazine.
