This episode was shot in 2013 on a research cruise aboard the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute's research vessel Western Flyer. We joined Steve Haddock's lab to collect siphonophores with blue water SCUBA diving (nsgd.gso.uri.edu/casg/casgh05001.pdf) and the remotely operated underwater vehicle Doc Ricketts (mbari.org/dmo/vessels_vehicles/doc_ricketts/doc_ricketts.html). More details on the cruise are available at mbari.org/expeditions/Bioluminescence2013/index.htm .
