"Inside the Open Ocean: Blue Water Diving" produced by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), describes a specialized diving technique that lets biologists study the ocean's most fragile beings--soft, transparent animals such as jellyfish that are crushed by traditional tools such as plankton nets. Scientists had to find a way to spend time where these gelatinous animals live--inside the bottomless blue open ocean, drifting with the plankton.
