Yersin passes Rock of Gibraltar

Yersin passes Rock of Gibraltar

By Staff Writer - August 15, 2017

The exploration ship Yersin has passed the Rock of Gibraltar as part of its three-year journey to research the world’s waters, the local press reports.

The ship, which left the Principality of Monaco at the end of July under Captain Jean Dumarais, was sent off by Prince Albert to explore “marine biology, molecular biology, biodiversity, mega fauna, protection of endangered species, ocean acidification, pollution, and will aim for increases of marine protected areas.

The purpose-built ship has six research laboratories and a complete diving station and can travel 50 days independently. Yersin has been described as a clean ship with a limited impact on the environment, making it the ideal scientific research vessel.

The Monaco Explorations project can be followed on Facebook.
