Neil and Choy discover the heart of the sargassum community and work alongside veteran aquarium collector Chris Flook to reveal how crucial the sargassum seaweed is to the health of the entire ocean.
Follow the team as they explore the deep sea structure of Argus tower and inshore mangrove bays, building a bigger picture of how the intricate and delicate food web of the sargasso sea works.
Finally, the team attaches a tracking tag to one of the fastest fish that thrives amongst these floating seaweed matts, the wondrous Wahoo!
