Research at sea is an expensive endeavor. EcoOcean has been supporting marine research in Israel for more than 15 years. We do this by providing the services of the Mediterranean Explorer research vessel (the Medex), our state of the art research vessel at accessible costs
The Medex, one of the only two RV’s in Israel, is used by the Israeli marine research community to discover and deepen its knowledge of the Israeli Sea. The hundreds of studies conducted on bored of the MedEx, have revolutionized marine research in Israel and positioned it as a rising force on the global arena. At EcoOcean, we place emphasis on equipment and sampling means that minimize the damage to the marine environment.
The MedEx is equipped with a laboratory on board, a remotely operate vehicle (ROV), a crane, dedicated research equipment and sophisticated means of collection and sampling. The MedEx can serve both daily expeditions and week-long ones. It is an optimal .platform for marine research
