Life-IndemaresWe dedicated most of the day to doing as many dredges as possible, but we also sent the ROV down for its last immersion after three years of work in the bank (Chella Bank, Seco de los Olivos). We sent it deep, to about -360 metres in an area that we hadn’t yet surveyed and saw gentle elevations in the NW area of the principal bank. The detrital sea floor was interesting, as usual, we saw gorgonians and some sponges on rocky outcrops.
