What kinds of creatures would you expect to find in the world's most powerful tidal maelstrom? Named from the Scandinavian words for "grinding current," the tides storm in and out of the Saltstraumen sound, near the city of Bodø, Norway. While that makes for some wild looking seas, the really interesting stuff is happening beneath the frothy swirls. Check out this slideshow of wildlife below the surface of the most dangerous tidal maelstrom on the planet.
