Massive phytoplankton blooms have been captured by NASA satellite around the Kamchatka Peninsula, Far East Russia in May 2013.  This includes the Sea of Okhotsk - right where our expeditioners aboard the Spirit of Enderby are at the moment!

Phytoplankton are crucial to the abundance and health of other marine life, so we are looking forward to more reports of amazing marine and other wildlife from the current voyagers.
