To better understand our local waters, OceanGate is inviting citizen scientists known as Mission Specialists to participate in a manned submersible dive in Possession Sound. The team is conducting weekly dives to explore an area where fresh and saltwater mix near the Snohomish River Estuary, offering the opportunity to observe a wide variety of marine life including endangered species of rockfish, deep-diving shark foraging habitats and alienlike bioluminescent organisms. Join us as we bring together professional marine scientists and citizen scientists to increase awareness and knowledge of Possession Sound. Professional scientists will be visiting from various organizations such as the University of British Columbia, University of Washington, and NOAA.
