With Sonia Rowley and Richard Pyle.
Brian Greene, Dr. Richard Pyle, and Dr. Sonia Rowley are on this dive, part of the Association for Marine Exploration‘s expedition to Pohnpei, Ant Atoll, and Pakin Atoll. As Dr. Rowley posted on the site, “After our remarkably successful 2014 research expedition to Pohnpei and Ant Atoll, it was clear that we simply had to return…” I asked Brian about the clove oil being used in the video. He told me, “The clove oil is the same that you can buy at any health food store. We mix it with pure ethanol. It slows the fish down for a few minutes and can flush certain species out of hiding. Rich was using it to collect a Belonaperca pylei.” Such fascinating work; I look forward to seeing what else comes out of this expedition.
