Our friends are hunkered down for the passing of Hurricane Teddy. We are wishing them safety and great fishing success when they head back out on Friday!

We’re “hunkered down in safe harbor” and looking forward to transiting to the next location after #HurricaneTeddy passes through. On Friday we’ll end up in the Mahone Bay, West Ironbound, Lahave, Lunenburg area to continue our #greatwhiteshark research.

Its #WhatsitWednesday! This is one of my favorite fish in the ocean! Tell me what species it is and what is the function of the specialized structures in the eyes?

This is how science progresses. This is such a wonderful story. Go Mary Lee. Go Lydia. Go Science Team!

Today we celebrate Mary Lee’s 8th tagging anniversary. Thousands have fallen in love with her since then, but few likely realize just how pivotal she was for OCEARCH. For several reasons, it’s quite likely that we would not be here on Expedition Nova Scotia 2020 if it wasn’t for her.
