At the tail end of October Nautilus is continuing off the back of a previous collaboration with the US West Coast Deep Sea Coral Initiative and EXPRESS. As this is one of the shallower expeditions of Nautilus’ 2020 calendar, this 11 day expedition will allow for more extensive mapping and data analysis because of Nautilus’ continuously high tech and upgraded. Again the initiative is to scale and summarise which areas of this archipelago that were not thoroughly explored in previous expeditions to maintain protection of vital marine biology studies.
