On Board the Hudson

Madeline Cashion is a MSc student at UBC with the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries. There she studies the exploitation of sharks and it’s effect on marine ecosystems. Throughout her career she has worked with plankton in Nova Scotia, sharks in South Africa, and as is the subject of this story, deep sea coral reefs in the Atlantic.

Madeline’s story comes from her time on board the CCGS Hudson, the first and oldest research vessel in Canada. She tells us about the amazing story of two different search and rescue missions her boat took part in out in the cold waters of the Atlantic. Below you can see some pictures of these missions taken by Madeline and other members of her crew.

When they weren’t rescuing other boats, Madeline and the research crew on board the Hudson conducted a deep sea study of cold water corals far off the coast of Newfoundland. Katie was blown away to hear about these deep sea reefs, so we’ve also posted some pictures of these incredible organisms below.
