Four marine undergraduate students from the School of Biological Sciences have won a place aboard the Southern Surveyor to spend five days working with Dr Will Figueira and Dr Sebastian Holmes sailing from Hobart to Sydney on October 11 - 15. Read daily accounts and see images of life on board the ship and what sea creatures they trawl up from the depths.
