Event Description

True Tales of Exploring the Deep Sea, Discovering Hidden Life and Selling the Seabed

Delve into the deep with marine biologist, Dr Helen Scales, as she explores the living wonders in the greatest ocean depths.

The Brilliant Abyss shows just how far people have gone to exploit the sea - for knowledge and profit - and the perils it currently faces. Our collective footprint in the deep sea is increasing, but there are ways we might remedy that going forward...

This event is part of SIREN23 in Ulster University, Belfast.
