Dive 02: Santa Rosa South

ROV Deep Discoverer has been deployed and is currently descending to the seafloor at Santa Rosa South for Dive 02 of the 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas Expedition. Today’s dive will start at ~650m and climb a ridge feature located on Santa Rosa Reef, south of Guam, to explore for high-density communities of deep-sea corals (precious corals in particular) and survey bottom-fish fishery habitat. Join us to see what we discover!
