    About This Project

    The deep sea makes up more than 90% of our ocean yet receives little attention due to poor access to technology and expertise especially within Small Island States. This project aims to explore the Seychelles deep-sea (below 200 m) using the newly developed prototype - the Maka Niu - an affordable deep sea camera and sensor. The new understanding generated on deep-sea habitats will support effective ocean management and underpin community engagement with the benefits of the deep sea.
