I sailed as Chief Scientist on Oceanus in July 2009, on a biological oceanography cruise to two deep hypersaline anoxic basins in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. The sampling was extremely challenging, and we couldn't have accomplished what we did without the tremendous efforts of the captain and crew of the Oceanus. I thank them all for their excellent work, the nice memories, and I congratulate Oceanus for having such a long and productive career.
