Flores, Açores
You are incredibly privileged when for 20 days places like this become your "office" #view. Oceano Azul Expedition #Azores in partnership with the #waittfoundation and #natgeopristineseas participated in a scientific #expedition focused on the #conservation of these #islands. The goal was to gather information to understand the needs and available options in terms of preservation of this #unique #ecosystem.
An incredible unforgettable experience!! #flores #portugal #nature #ocean #blue #oceanconservation #blueazores #science #oceanoazulexpedition @oceanoazulfoundation @waiitfoundation @natgeopristineseas

There is something entirely transporting about film. In this case, it takes us back to our expedition to the Azores, where we spent a few weeks at sea with @oceanoazulfoundation and @waittfoundation studying the marine environments of these volcanic islands and their neighboring seamounts. Filming by @jonbetzfilms and @manusanfelix_official.

A dusky grouper is caught in a moment of gaping on the sandy seafloor off the coast of Corvo Island. It may look like this grouper is having a pandiculation — a yawn and a stretch — but we still don’t understand the many functions of yawning, so we can’t know for sure. This gaping may be used to increase the flow of water through their mouth and gills, and thereby increase the flow of oxygen to the fish's tissues.

Our most recent expedition with @oceanazulfoundation and @waittfoundation was not only a successful scientific exploration, but also an outstanding adventure at sea. And since we have a love for numbers, here are a few from the expedition that stand out:
🐋28 researchers
🐋96 participants
🐋More than 600 dives and more than 500 hours spent underwater
🐋21,469 square kilometers of newly-mapped sea floor area
🐋650 miles travelled
🐋60 hours spent exploring the deep-sea ecosystems

Such a cool discovery made by our “brother” boat during last month’s #OceanoAzulExpedition.

New hydrothermal field discovered during the Oceano Azul Expedition in the Azores was named “LUSO”. What else?
The scientific team attributed this name because it was the first time that an expedition organized by a Portuguese institution, led by Portuguese scientists and using national ships and means finds a deep sea hydrothermal field in Portuguese waters. @waittfoundation @natgeopristineseas @marinhaportuguesa #emepc #pristineseas #oceanoazulfoundation #oceanoazulexpedition #blueazores #ocean #science #conservation

The Blue Shark (Prionace glauca) is taken in large numbers (an estimated 20 million individuals annually), mainly as bycatch, but there are no population estimates and many catches are unreported. There is concern over the removal of such large numbers of this likely keystone predator from the oceanic ecosystem.

From the #OceanoAzulExpedition and our stop at Gigante seamount. Kyler from @natgeopristineseas team is up early to prep his full ocean depth dropcams and be the first deployment of the day. It can take a long time to fall to the bottom of the ocean.

Princess Alice Bank is a submerged seamount known for the abundance of pelagic marine life seen there. And sure enough, during one of our dives at the seamount yesterday we found ourselves among this school of box rays, Mobula tarapacana, gliding gently through the water, feeding on plankton. This species of ray can reach up to 12 feet in width!
