Study of Seamount Ecosystems near the Mariana Islands (Continued) Follow up work was conducted to assist local officials in using underwater television system and to recruit additional staff in the Ministry. Further surveys of the unexplored seamounts are necessary to realise the full potential of these resources. Evaluation research into the capabilities of the University of Guam's research vessel, Pescadot to be used for parts of this study. Continuation of equipment development for deep-water deployment in respect to studies of seamounts near Guam. The remote control marine TV camera was tested outside the reef at Guam. The remote control marine TV camera was operated within diver depth outside the reef during a site visit to Guam. Improved handling techniques and procedures were recommended and implemented.
