Abstract:

Take a virtual field trip to the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico with expedition lead Dr. Joshua Voss, from Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. 

In 2019, NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries partnered with the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration to expand our understanding of sanctuaries through deep-water exploration and research. Aboard the R/V Manta, Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration staff, Flower Garden Bank National Marine Sanctuary researchers, and partner explorers ventured into the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana. There, they explored areas that have been proposed for sanctuary expansion and investigated the biodiversity and connectivity of mesophotic coral ecosystems. Join us to learn about the highlights from this expedition as lead scientist Dr. Joshua Voss recounts their exploration.
