expl0125 by NOAA Photo Library

Date: January 16th @ 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location:  Royal BC Museum at 675 Belleville St.

Part of a series of monthly talks the theme of this talk is BC Seamounts.

“Seamounts-underwater mountains that rise more than 1,000 metres (3,280 feet) from the seafloor – are offshore biodiversity hotspots.”

As little about these areas Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Haida Nation, Oceana Canada and Ocean Networks Canada embarked on an expedition to explore the seamounts near the island of Haida Gwaii. Discover that they found and the role the Royal BC Museum plays in safeguarding these specimens.
