A problem with the camera

© OCEANA / Enrique Talledo


The first light of day passes through the porthole; the sea is calm and quiet. Several seabirds are welcoming the day. We are already in the next diving station.  The first time we put the ROV in the water we had a problem with the high definition camera, and had to abort the immersion. After that tense moment, all is well and we can restart the work again.

There was dredge in the water in an area that is trawled, that is now waiting in the lab for its contents to be examined.  The sea bed was sandy with detritus, and some remains of old rhodoliths.  Today we found a lot of invertebrates living over the dead leaves of Posidonia oceanica, which comes from shallow waters.
