On Friday 29th March 2019 the research cruise to 'Tristan by Discovery' (RRS Discovery was due back at Tristan da Cunha the following day) was featured in a live audience event at the Natural History Museum in London.

The Museum's Alastair Hendry interviewed Serena Wright of the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, and introduced an ambitious live video link-up with researchers on board the ship in Tristan waters.

This picture, taken during the NHM event, captures the moment when pelagic cameras emerged from the depths
of the South Atlantic, with Paul Whomersley of Cefas explaining from on board the vessel.

Before the event, the Museum marine researcher Dr Adrian Glover provided a laboratory tour
for Tristan UK Representative Chris Carnegy, Foreign Office ‘Blue Belt' lead Kylie Bamford,
and CEFAS Chief Executive Tom Karsten.
