The Oceana team gets ready for its yearly expedition. Marine scientists, divers, underwater robot operators and sailors make up the crew of the research catamaran Oceana Ranger. Both the Ranger and the Explorer, an inflatable boat, are used to document illegal fishing activities and collect data on the sea bed. This information, together with unique underwater images taken by divers and ROV, are used to produce reports and scientific papers, and to defend environmental protection proposals in international political fora.
