New short film: ‘Understanding the deep sea’

Narrated by early-career researcher Kirsty McQuaid (University of Plymouth, UK and South African National Biodiversity Institute), the film talks about the benefits and challenges of deep-sea research and describes key focus areas of the Hub’s research, such as habitat mapping and medical microbiology. The film also highlights The African Network for Deep-water Researchers that was established as a response to the fact that ‘Africa has been identified as lacking capacity for deep-sea and offshore research, a critical limitation in the management of key deep-water Blue Economy sectors’.
