The exhibition on the Portuguese Deep Sea is now located in the inferior floor of the Library of Universidade de Aveiro until June 26.
Ocean covers more than 70 % of our planet’s surface but only 5 to 10 % are known.
This exhibition presents a background of the pioneers in Portuguese Oceanography and the progressive organization of the research in this area. It also presents information on the Portuguese deep-sea diving and the project to extend the continental platform. Moreover, the exhibition highlights the relevance to boost National Sea as a crucial element to the development of the country.
This exhibition is an initiative of the Minister of the Sea following the Oceans Meeting 2018 and has already been in several locations of the country.
