The majority of the team is now on Santa Rosa Island! We have a great ride aboard the ship, The Ocean Ranger, courtesy of the national park service.

We arrived and immediately consumed work space with numerous toolboxes, parts, and ROVs.

The MPA surveys have been going very well, despite some hangups. Team members Chris and Blake have completed in the neighborhood of 30 transects and will continue to collect data over the next week.

There is still work to be done on the intertidal unit with new reels but we are making some great progress and will be hopefully be testing it on thursday.
