Values & Vision

To harness the curiosity and creativity of sailors and scientists to sample ocean plankton at unprecedented scales, for in depth evaluation of ocean health, biodiversity, & evolution.

Ongoing development

We are working on a High-speed Net and a completely new modular and low-cost miscroscope, the PlanktoScope, for quantitative live imaging by citizen sailors.

Plankton & Arts

We put exceptional plankton images and moovies/3D-prints in the hands of children and artists, stimulating an emotional and intuitive interpretation/representation of the invisible world that drives the ecological cycles of our planet.
