Researchers collected water samples

August 292016

August 2016
SeaKeepers partnered with scientists from the Barber Lab of UCLA to study environmental DNA (eDNA). Researchers collected water samples along the coasts of Anacapa and Santa Cruz. The samples were then filtered and taken back to the lab where DNA analyses could determine marine species that had recently been in the area, providing important data about the abundance and biodiversity of local organisms. The research was supported in part by a grant from the National Geographic Society Committee for Research and Exploration.

Shark Tagging

August 292016

July 2016
SeaKeepers joined UM Shark Research & Conservation and Save Our Seas Foundation on July 12 & 13 aboard Fleet Miami’s D/Y Shredder for two days of shark tagging. The shark team caught multiple nurse sharks in shallow inshore and deeper offshore waters in North Miami. Participants helped to tag the sharks, collect fin clips, and take body measurements. The data will be used to evaluate shark health and behavioral patterns. Save Our Seas Foundation visually documented the sampling process both on the boat and in the water.

deployment and retrieval of a nanolander

August 292016

June 2016
SeaKeepers joined the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in its first successful expedition at sea aboard the D/Y Niyama. Kevin Hardy, member of SeaKeepers’ Scientific Advisory Council, oversaw the deployment and retrieval of a nanolander off of the San Diego coast. The nanolanders are specifically designed to stay submerged at great depths for an extended period of time, collecting data about the surrounding environment. They can then be retrieved and the data can be collected and analyzed.

Water sampling

August 292016

April 2016
Once a month, SeaKeepers volunteers to collect and process water samples for a water quality monitoring program called Biscayne Bay Water Watch, of Florida SeaGrant. The sites we sponsor are located just out of Coconut Grove and the type of water quality measurements we collect include temperature, pH, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, and chlorophyll a. Long-term monitoring is important for the health of Biscayne Bay because it creates a baseline to measure changes in water quality that may cause harmful algal blooms, which can deplete oxygen and lead to fish die-offs.

Thank you to Dr. Martin Arostegui and the D/Y Timely Sale for providing support!

retrieve and redeploy hydrophone receivers

August 292016

March 2016
SeaKeepers and the University of Miami Shark Research Center teamed up to retrieve and redeploy hydrophone receivers from Tiger Beach, Bahamas, onboard D/Y Fugitive and its tender, Vigilante. The hydrophones are secured underwater to pick up acoustic signals from tagged sharks swimming in proximity. About once a year, these hydrophones are picked up, cleaned, data downloaded, and then reinstalled. The data retrieved from the hydrophones provide information about shark behavior and migration, which in turn can be used towards protecting these threatened species.

Genome sequencing

August 292016

The University of Florida research team, under the lead of Principal Investigator Dr. Leonid Moroz, and by the support of D/Y Penny Mae and crew, have completed the next edition of plankton tows and genome sequencing. The UF scientists conducted plankton tows en route from Panama to West Palm Beach, Florida over the course of several days.

The tiny, planktonic organisms, such as copepods, salps, ctenophores, and juvenile cephalopods that were collected during the cruise, are integral members of marine ecosystems and play a vital role in the health of our oceans. By collecting samples and sequencing planktonic genomics, Dr. Moroz and his team aim to learn more about these critical species by identifying and tracking them to assess their connectivity and dispersal.

D/Y Penny Mae has been involved in several scientific expeditions with SeaKeepers, including trips for similar genome sequencing research as well as shark research.

Global FinPrint BRUV Surveys

August 292016

SeaKeepers teamed up with Global FinPrint, an organization dedicated to assessing shark and ray populations worldwide and understanding the key roles they play in tropical reef ecosystems. With the support of D/Y Fugitive and crew, we worked with two Global FinPrint scientists from the State University of New York at Stony Brook to deploy Baited Remote Underwater Video (BRUV) systems to complete a New Providence Island elasmobranch survey. In total, 25 BRUV’s were deployed, collecting over 2250 minutes of footage, capturing on film a variety of marine life including reef sharks, a tiger shark, a nurse shark, a southern stingray, moray eels, groupers, snappers, and other reef fish. Several sharks observed were notably fouled- they had hooks in their mouths, meaning fishing is present in the area.

Research Expedition

June 12015

The International SeaKeepers Society worked onboard D/Y Fugitive with shark researchers from the RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program at the University of Miami.  Researchers spent a few days working out of West End, Bahamas to collect, clean, download and redeploy a set of 32 hydrophone receivers at Tiger Beach.  Everyone onboard got involved with the research and helped make the turnaround smooth and successful.

The hydrophones are mounted to the sea floor throughout the area and are set to receive acoustic signals from tagged tiger sharks in the area.  Data is downloaded every 6 months and provides scientists with data on shark behavior.  In addition to the hydrophone turnaround trips, SeaKeepers puts together tagging expeditions regularly.  Tagging sharks and monitoring their health and behavior is important for conservation work and marine management in the Bahamas.

 

Dr. Neil Hammerschlag shows us all the growth on a recently pulled hydrophone.  This is cleaned off so that when they go back in the water, there's no growth on them at all!

Specific coral heads that had been previously measured more than 10 years ago were revisited. At each site scientists measured the change in height of the dead coral heads and used this to calculate the amount of erosion occurring on these reefs. Currently the causes for erosion are not fully known. Hypotheses include fish feeding, increased sedimentation and turbidity on the reef, and tourism activities.
