Scientist-Led Expedition
Aboard DISCOVERY Yacht Shredder, the International SeaKeepers Society teamed up with Beneath the Waves, Global Marine Travel, and Grand Isle Resort to conduct shark tagging, as well as deploying new acoustic receiver technology. This was a part of the ongoing Beneath the Waves shark sanctuary study which consists of tagging sharks and collecting as much data as possible to asses how shark populations are thriving in the protected Bahamian waters. The project focuses on the benefits of sanctuaries and determining their effectiveness of conserving sharks over multiple years.

SeaKeepers Spotlight
SeaKeepers Partners with Spoondrift on the Spotter Device
The Spotter device is a web-integrated solution for collecting ocean wave and surface current data, designed from the ground up to be easy to use and intuitive. It is the result of extensive research and experimentation with low-cost sensing strategies for ocean waves. By integrating GPS, satellite communication, and solar technology, Spotter overcomes battery storage limitations and can operate anywhere in the world. Designed for usability, Spotter is compact and lightweight so you can carry it and deploy it from any size vessel.

Through The Porthole
Pufferfish ( Tetraodontidae )
The pufferfish, also known as blow fish, is a species that is notoriously known for their slow-moving, clumsy style of swimming that makes them vulnerable to predators. In lieu of escape, they use their highly elastic stomachs to ingest large amounts of water or even air if necessary to turn themselves into a virtually inedible ball several times their normal size. Most species contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them deadly for human consumption. Astonishingly enough, countries like Korea, China, and Japan consider them to be a delicacy. Only highly-trained, licensed chefs are allowed to serve them safely.
