Grimalditeuthis bonplandi squid in the Gulf of California
During their first ROV dive in the Gulf, MBARI marine biologists saw this rare squid known as Grimalditeuthis bonplandi.

This week MBARI researchers began the second leg of their four-month-long research expedition in the Gulf of California. Over the next two weeks, marine biologists led by Bruce Robison will use the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Doc Ricketts to study animals living in the deep waters of the Gulf.

In early January 2015, a team of MBARI engineers, led by Andy Hamilton, set out to sea to recover an experimental buoy that creates electrical energy from ocean waves. This power buoy had been deployed six miles southwest of Moss Landing Harbor for 131 days, while engineers tested the system’s ability to handle storms.     Read more
