Nekton, a charitable foundation whose mission is to explore and research the deep ocean, launches a short video to highlight its partnership with a team of technical scuba divers from the non-profit organisation, Global Underwater Explorers.

GUE’s contribution to Nekton’s summer mission in 2016 off the coast of Bermuda was instrumental in gathering biological samples and visual transects of the seabed at depths of up to 90 meters.

This data is now being evaluated by Nekton’s scientists at its laboratory in Oxford, UK, and will be used to deliver the XL Catlin Deep Ocean Survey, a pioneering multi-disciplinary marine research programme assessing the health and resilience of the deep ocean.
