An underwater webcam in the Port of Miami has become a locking sensation.


Marine biologist and artist Colin Foord has installed a webcam in the industrial port of Miami, in the city’s busiest shipping canal.Since February, the Coral City camera has documented more than 100 species of fish. Foord calls it an “underwater campfire where we can all sit”. He became a sensation during the lockdown, in part thanks to his undisputed star, a tailless doctorfish called Oval.

Produced by Clayton Conn, Alice Goia, Maryam Maruf and Ellen Tsang.
