The Spanish EDMAKTUB NGO is an association for the study and conservation of
the aquatic environment, specially focusing on cetacean research.
EDMAKTUB is proud to announce its coming project:
SPRING CAMPAIGN: ATLANTIC CROSSING AND CARIBBEAN SURVEY
During the next four months, the Association 15m motor sailor will cross
the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean Sea and sail the Antilles, from Dominica
to the Dominican Republic, before going back to the Azores before Summer.
The route will depart from Barcelona and go through the Gibraltar Strait,
the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, the Antilles and the Azores, then will reach
again the Gibraltar Strait, and finally will end in Barcelona.
The main objective of the project is to monitor cetacean populations through
acoustic surveys and underwater video recordings. The vessel is fully
equipped with the appropriate technology: towed hydrophone array and digital
acquisition system as well as professional underwater cameras to allow the
localization, identification and recording of cetaceans.
EDMAKTUB offers its collaboration to any individual scientist or research
group interested in the field work or data analysis.
EDMAKTUB would also appreciate if groups working in the Atlantic crossing
routes and the Caribbean Sea would get in touch to share information.
