This lovely image is of a “fish louse” sp. from this week's survey at . Identified by Dave Conway. They are well adapted for clinging to the surface of fishes, flattened, with a little curtain around the main body that helps them get good contact.

We're picking up lots of mackerel on the echosounder at the moment, so there's lots of food around for these beauties! Fingers crossed we'll spot one out on survey 🦈

in 1914 Ernest Shackleton left to cross the Antarctic from one side to the other via the pole. The trip did not go to plan the Endurance was crushed and the crew were stranded. Shackleton made an 800 mile trip for help. All of the crew survived the two year ordeal.

Superb trip out into Sound on board - great seeing the sea grass and kelp beds via their underwater camera and to be able to discuss my Campaign to designate Plymouth Sound as the UK’s first National Marine Park
