2019 Aquarius Reef Base Expedition

Team USX will be returning to the Atlantic Ocean, this time to Florida International University’s Aquarius Reef Base from 23-27 October 2019. The Aquarius Reef Base is an underwater habitat located off Key Largo and deployed at the ocean floor of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Our team of divers will assist FIU researchers in the study and preservation of marine ecosystems through collecting and reporting information on marine fish populations as well as selected invertebrate and algae species. This data will be utilized in multiple FIU research projects and be entered into a database used by a variety of researchers and resource agencies in monitoring the health of these local ecosystems.
