MARINE SUR­VEY OF THE PA­CIFIC

Asian Diver (English) - - History -

Swiss zool­o­gist Alexan­der Agas­siz makes sev­eral ex­pe­di­tions on the steamship Al­ba­tross to study co­ral reefs in the Pa­cific Ocean. The ship’s crew makes sound­ings and col­lects spec­i­mens from is­lands and atolls in the South Pa­cific. Over the next six years, the ex­pe­di­tions dis­cover an abun­dant range of marine life from pre­vi­ously un­ex­plored re­mote re­gions.
