MERCES  at the University of Azores for the Open Day event 

Open Day at the University of Azores, with high schools from Horta discovering the coral collection, and how scientists explore the deep sea. Students also learnt about the close relationship between researchers and local fishermen - crucial to the MERCES' restoration work for deep-sea corals. A movie made during the 2018 campaign "Blue Azores" completed this full-immersion in the deep sea!
