Each week, we feature a worthy citizen science project or nature news segment from around the world. This week’s is OceanEYEs, brought to you by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center.
NOAA scientists have deployed cameras to the ocean floor to observe deep-sea fish, and each camera can record tens of thousands of images! They need your help to analyze some of these photos. According to their website, by participating in OceanEYEs research, you can “explore the depths of the ocean to help monitor the Hawaiʻi bottomfish population!”
