At 6 a.m. in the morning, my mobile phone’s rang; we had to make the most out of our time in the Baltic. An hour later, we set out in to a dense forest in search of the one of the most beautiful mammals: the moose.
But, none of the four of us that went out saw any—one day perhaps…
Later, we conducted our 11th dive in Swedish waters. The salinity here is very low, around 3 parts per thousand.
One of the most interesting ecosystems that we documented was a small marine-plant forest that shelters a number of invertebrates like mixidaceos and gastropods as well as fish found in brackish or fresh water.
Throughout the afternoon, I was able to document how Aimi and Rubén operated the drop camera in shallow water.
We’re excited for tomorrow, when we’ll be working in a nature reserve where another mammal can be found, in this case a marine mammal: the gray seal (Halichoerus grypus).
