Malpelo: HSH Prince Albert Onboard, Day 2

Today HSH Prince Albert spent the morning diving with Sandra Bessudo and her team as they tagged hammerhead sharks and in the afternoon he worked with the teams onboard to launch the ROV. His Serene Highness learned from ROV operator Pierre Cordier how to use the robotic arm, and assisted by collecting 2 samples from the sea floor for the INVEMAR team. In the evening we hosted a small informal gathering for the scientists to discuss their work with HSH Prince Albert in further detail.
