SeaKeepers Programming with Florida International University

SeaKeepers joins Florida International University and Global FinPrint aboard M/Y Archimedes to deploy BRUVs (Baited Remote Underwater Video) and collect data in the Southern Caribbean. As an area recently devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017, data collected so recently post-storm is incredibly valuable to the project. Necessary equipment will be sent with one FIU researcher to train crew to continue efforts beyond our occupancy of the vessel.

In June 2017, the teams worked together to deploy BRUVs from D/Y Lady Olivia in the Indian Ocean. In September 2016, SeaKeepers and Global FinPrint conducted an expedition in the waters near Florida International University’s Biscayne Bay Campus on the INSETTA Boatworks D/Y. This expedition helped to promote the organization’s research with BRUVs and was an opportunity to capture images of sharks, rays, and other marine life to improve management and conservation efforts.
