Yachts For Science are currently supporting Basecamp Research Water Sampling. Shown here, Emma Bolton is using a portable lab to carry out water / marine sediment sampling, whilst vessels are doing sea trials or during deliveries. This vital DNA research has minimal impact to the vessels private programme or charters. The portable lab allows Basecamp to filter water and extract the DNA from water and marine sediment in the sampling locations the vessel is working in. This allows for analysis of biodiversity of the marine environment, providing insights which are made publicly available for diversity studies world-wide.
