We have had the privilege of working with OCEANA on two
research expeditions on Oregon Coast reefs.  We have worked
three expeditions with Marine Applied Research and Exploration
(MARE) for California Department of Fish and Game on the
Northern and Central California coast, one with Global Divers,
two with Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlive and one with
the U.S. Navy.  See the different setups and methods in photos
below.

These charters involved holding station up to 1 1/2 hrs for an
ROV dive to 390 meters as well as running grid lines at a
maximum speed of 1/2 knot.
