Long Weekend Picture Blitz!

Whoops! Forgot it was the long weekend! Photo tips and maintenance tricks will have to wait for a bit; I’m at the end of my time here at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, and it’s been a decent go, but it’s time to leave. It’s going to be a couple of picture updates for the next few posts, as I’m headed back to the interior of the province to get going as a commercial diver before the work season winds down. I’m going to be working on some new designs for the online shop as well, so keep your eyes peeled for that announcement!

In other news, I’ve received permission from Neptune Canada to blog about the maintenance dives we did on their sensor node! Neptune Canada is a leading ocean research group based out of UVic in Victoria, British Columbia; and you can read more about them on their Website, or watch videos they post on YouTube. The dives for Neptune Canada and the Baeria Rocks biodiversity surveys were quite easily the high points of my summer. I’ll be posting more links to Neptune Canada’s research and videos in the future as well, as I develop more scientific diving articles and articles on conservation and ocean science.

Now… The Photos! These pictures were taken during dives at Sanford Island, in Barkley Sound, British Columbia. They’ll be added to the Cold Sub Aqua Photographs section later this week with full names!
