Blackwater Diving: Exploring the Night Sea

  • Aquarium of the Pacific 100 Aquarium Way Long Beach, CA, 90802 United States (map)

Lecture with Mike Bartick

In this lecture Bartick will share photos and stories from his experiences exploring the ocean at night, including images of gelatinous sea jellies, sea snails, squid, and paper nautiluses—some of the ocean’s ancient animals. Drifting on the night current in the open ocean with nothing more than a lit buoy line, Mike Bartick explores the night sea to photograph the unique and often unseen animal life that resides there. Bartick is a field guide who conducts photo safaris, lectures, and seminars. His photos have been published in Sport Diver, Diver Life, and other publications.
