Adventure Beneath the Sea: Living in an Underwater Science Station

What would it be like to live sixty feet below the ocean waves? Author Ken Mallory and photographer Brian Skerry found out. They spent a week in the Aquarius underwater laboratory on a coral reef off the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. They lived in cramped quarters. They went scuba diving every day--to study the fish of the reef and to see if they stayed in the surrounding marine protected area. They slept in bunks with the constant crackle
of snapping shrimp coming through the shell of the underwater home. Skerry is a National Geographic photographer. The book for ages 10 and up is entitled Adventure Beneath the Sea: Living in an Underwater Science Station. Click on the book title to the left to order a copy of the book.
