Hunting bubbles : news from the deep

Visiting the seafloor and becoming mesmerized by some of the amazing sights the team has experienced via ROV SuBastian while studying methane seeps on the U.S. Pacific Northwest margin.

On June 29, 2019, Florida scientists tagged a deep-sea shark from a submersible, a historic first on a research expedition led by OceanX, the Cape Eleuthera Institute and shark expert Dean Grubbs of Florida State University.
At a depth of more than 1,700 feet off the coast of Eleuthera, the team encountered several bluntnose sixgill sharks, including this large female, about 16 feet long.
Gavin Naylor, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History filmed the encounter.

A giant barrel jellyfish, similar to the size of a human, was spotted off the coast of Cornwall by biologist and wildlife presenter Lizzie Daly.
She came across the sea creature when she was diving near Falmouth on Saturday as part of her Wild Ocean Week campaign, which aims to celebrate our marine wold and raise funds for the Marine Conservation Society.
Barrel jellyfish are the largest species of jellyfish found in British waters.

Dr. Nathan Robinson (@ceibahamas), alongside Dr. Edie Widder (@team_orca_), captured the first-ever footage of the giant squid in US waters.
This is only the second time the giant squid has been filmed in the wild (the first time was from #alucia, in Japan, 2012).
But sighting the #giantsquid wasn't the only notable event that day...
Hear how they could've lost it all. Mission and scientific research by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration, the Cape Eleuthera Institute, and the Ocean Research & Conservation Association (Team ORCA).
