Dear MARMAMers,

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.
