SCUBAnauts - 8/7/09
Hey, my name is Marcos, I'm 18 years old, I just graduated from high school, and on my way to Notre Dame. Thanks to NOAA and FWC, the SCUBAnauts are monitoring the coral spawning in the Keys. We arrived today in Key Largo, a little tired but ready to do science. We first did a checkout dive at Molasses Reef (mooring ball 11), the site that we are supposed to be monitoring, and although the dive was only 15 minutes, it gave us a chance to get a good feel for the reef. At night we split into two groups, each group going down for 30 minutes at a time in rotation. There was no spawning that night, but it was a good practice run.
