This is a compilation of interesting clips showing marine animals and plants seen from the deck of a ship in the Gulf of Mexico. There are dolphins, sperm whales, sargassum, and fishes. All of these clips were shot during oceanographic voyages of the ECOGIG consortium, a group of scientists studying the ecological effects of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico. Another set of clips, Sea Scapes I (vimeo.com/77000071), shows some of the weather phenomena we encountered at sea.
