Blue Water Diving

The best way to discover how animals find food, reproduce, and communicate is to observe them in their natural habitat. For scientists who study pelagic zooplankton such as jellyfish and salps, that means entering a watery world far from shore and with no bottom in sight—and that requires the technique known as blue water diving.
