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

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!

On Wednesday, scientists discovered a new hydrothermal field on the seamount Gigante at 570m depth and 60 miles from Faial island, Azores! A great discover and we're so happy to be a part of it!

The perfect conditions for exploration don’t just put wind in your sails; they put a spring in your step and an extra tug in your arms. And we were lucky to have them on our side as we set sail from Flores for Gigante Seamount, where we are deploying our drop cameras for a look at the depths around the seamount.

Underwater cinematographer @manusanfelix_official captured this close-up of a huge dusky grouper eye surrounded by fish lice while diving at Corvo Island. “It is so impressive to dive with big fishes that you don’t pay attention to small details. But this grouper was so curious and friendly that I saw the fleas concentrated around his eyes,” he wrote from the field. These tiny parasitic copepods feed on the mucus and blood of their host fish.

On the western coast of Flores Island, steep cliffs give way to flat, coastal areas called fajãs. This fajã was created by lava flows and provides an ideal underwater habitat for a variety of marine life.

Seven days of #OceanoAzulExpedition and we had the chance to spot the smallest and strange marine creatures such as this blue sea slug (Glaucus atlanticus) with 3cm and the larger ones like this Sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) with 13m, an Endangered sea mammal according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. We still hope to spot blue whales.

While diving in the channel between S. Jorge and Pico islands, @ManuSanFelix_official spotted this Portuguese man o'war. Although the Portuguese man o’ war (Physalia physalis) looks like a single multi-cellular organism, it's actually a siphonophore—a colonial organism made up of multiple individual, specialized animals!

Our team is hard at work off the coast of Pico Island in Portugal's Azores archipelago. Our ship, the Santa Maria Manuela, is just one example of how Portugal and Azores have used their traditional knowledge of the sea and turned it toward conservation. A former cod fishing ship in Portugal's famous White Fleet, the Santa Maria Manuela is now used for scientific expeditions. Tomorrow we set sail to Flores and Corvo in the remote western part of the archipelago, where our scientists will dive in their largely unexplored waters.
