Research at sea is an expensive endeavor. EcoOcean has been supporting marine research in Israel for more than 18 years. We do this by providing the services of the Mediterranean Explorer research vessel (the Medex), at accessible costs. The Medex, is used by the Israeli marine research community to discover and deepen its knowledge of the Israeli Sea. The hundreds of studies conducted on board of the MedEx, revolutionized marine research in Israel and positioned it as a rising force on the global arena.
At EcoOcean, we place emphasis on state-of -the-Art 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 one-day and over a week-long expeditions. It is truly an optimal platform for marine research.
