Dive 18: Esmerelda Bank

ROV Deep Discoverer has been deployed for Dive 18 on Esmerelda Bank. Today’s dive will start ~600m to explore for deep-sea coral communities (especially precious corals), and transit upslope to also survey bottomfish fishery habitat (starting at ~400m) up to ~250m. We’ll be on the seafloor in about 15 minutes – tune in and explore with us!
