rating: +176+x

Item #: SCP-3379

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All sea traffic within 15 km of SCP-3379 is to be rerouted. Two boats are to patrol the area surrounding SCP-3379. SCP-3379-1 instances are to be delivered to the nearest Research Site for study.

Description: SCP-3379 is a rectangular portal approximately 8m beneath the surface of the Arctic ocean, measuring 10m by 15m and surrounded by a concrete frame. SCP-3379 is located 12 km north of Bolshevik Island, Russia.

Objects, hereafter designated SCP-3379-1, sporadically emerge from SCP-3379 and float to the surface. No pattern has yet been found to the timing of SCP-3379-1 manifestations.

SCP-3379-1 instances vary widely in composition and appearance. Approximately 70% of SCP-3379-1 instances appear to be carcasses of living organisms, in various states of preservation. As of 1/1/2018, over 350 instances have been recovered.

Instance Description
3379-1-03 A dead albino walrus (Odobenus rosmarus). Displays no other anomalous properties.
3379-1-11 A mass of fat and bone fragments. DNA sequences appear cetacean in origin but do not completely match any known species.
3379-1-41 Twelve sets of gills wrapped in a synthetic polymer package. DNA sequences match those of SCP-924.
3379-1-62 A large glass jar containing shark fins suspended in a saline gel.
3379-1-89 A 16-meter-long elasmosaur neck, heavily decomposed.
3379-1-119 A mason jar containing an unidentified liquid. Exposure to the liquid causes strong nostalgic feelings. Chemical analysis of the liquid revealed the presence of sodium chloride, ethanol, piperine, beta-endorphin, and several dozen uncharacterized organic compounds.

To date, SCP-3379's edge can only be crossed by sentient beings. Testing with fish equipped with cameras failed to reveal any hostile forces on the other side of the edge; thus, a preliminary exploration was approved.
