Seychelles trip January 2018

In January 2018 we returned to the Seychelles to recovery and re-deploy our moored instrumentation and extend our transect surveys. We also collaborated with colleagues from the University of Washington to deploy a mooring closer to the plateau shelf-break. The typical cast of characters (Isa, Rich, Geno, Sarah) were joined by Masters student Katelin Pedersen, PhD student Alfredo Giron-Nava, who helped tremendously in the field, and UW APL Oceanographer Ben Jokinen who helped with the shelf-break mooring deployment. We had excellent follow-up meetings with the Seychelles National Meteorological Service, the Seychelles Fishing Authority, and local students. We also met for the first time with scientists and researchers from the University of Seychelles (UniSey) Blue Economy Research Institute.
