Down to the Sea

Top of page

A look at some of the research work of marine scientists seeking new insight into the inner space of the sea so that its resources may be more rationally harvested and conserved. All aspects of ecology are studied, including over-fishing in some areas. The film shows some of the undersea technology developed to extend the eyes and hands of man, including scuba diving, underwater sleds, and a two-man submarine designed to carry scientists to depths beyond the scope of scuba divers.
