Paul shares the results of a ten-year project with one goal:
to take a census of all the life in the oceans!


A collaborative team of researchers from Dalhousie University and Memorial University – funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada – and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set out to explore yet-to-be-discovered parts of our ocean in the northwest Atlantic. Oceana Canada will bring the expedition into people’s homes using high-tech camera equipment and live streaming.
