This 2007 research expedition for new species aboard the RV Presbitero began in the port of Manila and then south through the Sulu Sea to our study site, southeast of the Sulu Archipelago. The bottom falls off abruptly to the sea floor 5000 thousand meters below. Lying just north of the equator, the Celebes Sea is the center of the most biologically diverse area of the world's ocean.
Music from Momu-The Dive.
