Tales from the Open Ocean, Adventures at Sea
From satellite tagging of bluefin tuna in the Atlantic Ocean to drilling ice cores in the frozen Bering Sea, Gaelin will take us on a virtual journey to share her passion for ocean exploration and illuminate cutting-edge research aimed at understanding our complex ocean ecosystems. Gaelin Rosenwaks is a marine scientist, explorer, photographer and filmmaker. She began her career in Antarctica researching the over-wintering patterns of Southern Ocean zooplankton and earned a Master’s Degree researching migratory movements of giant bluefin tuna. Alarmed by the changes happening in the oceans, Gaelin founded Global Ocean Exploration, Inc. to share her passion for ocean exploration, marine conservation and fishing through powerful imagery, words and adventure. She now participates in and conducts expeditions in every ocean to alert the public to the challenges facing the oceans and to the responses of the scientific community.
Gaelin is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers Club. She has published in scientific journals, newspapers and magazines and has lectured at institutions such as the Explorers Club, Patagonia, Inc. and Yale University. She has also appeared as a scientific consultant and angler on the National Geographic Channel Series Fish Warrior. To Gaelin, there is nothing better than being in the open ocean surrounded by endless blue water and passing wildlife.
