Oregon Field Guide

Diving for Science

Oregon’s notoriously dark, cold and turbulent coastal ocean hold a surprisingly colorful array of sea life. Scuba divers with extensive training brave pounding tidal surge and low visibility to explore for science and collect animals and other sea life for the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Certified Scientific Divers work under strict permits and never take over-fished or endangered species.
