Access exclusive live video from up to 500m underwater
AP is the only news agency working with scientists on a research mission to unlock the secrets of the Indian Ocean
Working with top international scientists from the UK-led Nekton Mission team, AP will explore depths of up to 500 meters (1,600 feet) off the coast of the Seychelles in two-person submarines.
Their goal is to map a vast stretch of sea down to depths of 3000 metres to discover what impact rising water temperatures are having on marine life and to generate critical data to support the Seychelles’ commitment to protect 30% of their national waters.
The submarines and a remotely operated underwater vehicle are equipped with a series of underwater and surface cameras and will use cutting-edge technology to broadcast live video from an estimated 60 dives across 50 days.
