“One of the great things about being on an expedition like this is we have a chance to find new creatures…. That single collection gave us two mysteries: one we solved and one is still going on.”
The #CostaRicaDeep expedition has been a biological bonanza, with researchers observing, sampling, and discovering all sorts of creatures. This is research that is going to directly apply and advance conservation efforts in Costa Rica. Greg Rouse, professor of marine biology in the Marine Biology Research Division at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, talks through a few of his highlight moments during the research cruise.
