n March 14, 2016 SeaKeepers Singapore 3D was launched

December 192016

On March 14, 2016 SeaKeepers Singapore 3D was launched with its inaugural educational outreach day onboard D/Y Asean Lady at Raffles Marina, Singapore. Students from the Singapore American School joined Dr. Ng, a scientist from the National University of Singapore, to learn about coastal development and local marine life. After presentations and an introductory lesson onboard the yacht, participants were provided nets to collect samples from the marina waters. They collected many interesting organisms, including squid, shrimp, fish, snails, soft corals and a flat worm. These animals were brought back onboard to identify and further examine using a microscope. Once the hands-on activities were completed, the animals were released back into the sea. SeaKeepers Board Member Julian Chang concluded the day with a tour of D/Y Asean Lady.

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.

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.

In November 2015 SeaKeepers worked with CARTHE researchers and students from the IMPACT program at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science. Students were tasked with designing and building their own drifters as part of IMPACT’s summer education program. Fleet Miami hosted everyone onboard the vessel Julia and provided an opportunity for the students to test their drifters alongside CARTHE’s professional drifters in the waters of Biscayne Bay.

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.

December 192016

In April of 2016, SeaKeepers worked with UM Shark Research and Fleet Miami to give filmmakers from the organization Youth Making Ripples a shark research experience. Onboard D/Y Shredder, six youth filmmakers, ranging in age from 13 to 16, along with 2 of the organization’s founders and six UM researchers spent the day tagging sharks outside of Haulover Inlet. Over five hours, we deployed 22 drum lines and caught 8 sharks – 5 Sandbar Sharks, 2 Great Hammerheads and 1 Scalloped Hammerhead. Everyone participated and helped with taking fin clips, tagging, making measurements and assessing overall shark health.

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!
