The continuing partnership between Cape Eleuthera Institute and OceanX helps to answer questions about the deep ocean habitats in the Exuma Sound with each sub dive. It also continues to raise more questions about these habitats, their inhabitants, and the human impact on each of them. With accessibility to technology onboard The Alucia, researchers at CEI continue to map the Exuma Sound to bolster future research projects off of Cape Eleuthera. In addition, collaborations with visiting researchers aim to identity species and their roles in these sensitive ecosystems.
