Dr Martin Collins of Cefas Leanne Henry talks about JCR visit
Earlier this month a team of scientists on board the Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross (JCR) have been investigating the habitats and biodiversity of the St Helena Marine Protected Area. The JCR called briefly to Jamestown on Friday 6th April to drop off passengers from Tristan and collect scientists and observers from St Helena. Joining from St Helena were Leeann Henry, Alison Small and Paul Cherret from the Marine Section, Donnie O’Bey from the Fishermen’s Association and Beth Taylor from National Trust. With all on-board, the vessel began a 7-day programme of science around St Helena EEZ. Working 24 hours a day!
