After a well spent day off, today we kept going with our campaign. First time in the morning before sailing, we hold some interviews with local media, and had the visit of Tamia Brito, who is the Restinga- Mar de las Calmas Marine Reserve of Fishing Interest coordinator. The day went by quietly with some loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) and birds such as the Great skua (Stercorarios skua) sightings. In days like these we take advantage for reviewing videos, analyze samples and try to do as much identification work as possible.

So, getting to the campaign´s halfway, we can count a total of 9 ROV dives, 6 dredges, 32 samples collected and around 30 species of corals and 20 identified sponges.
