Aquarius is the world’s only underwater research station. Located in Florida's National Marine Sanctuary, scientists live under the high-pressure conditions of the ocean as saturated divers.

In two missions, we have studied coral health and pioneered new techniques to track fish with electronic acoustic tags. Tracking fish provides information critical to understanding the movements of fish, which in turn helps in assessing the effective boundaries of protections.
