Episode 135,  Nov 30, 2022, 02:26 PM

For today’s BIG BOAT Interview, BOAT US Editor Cecile Gauert spoke with Pamela and Jaime Ellerston, owners of the yacht Calliope and founders of the Blue Trident charitable Foundation.
Last summer around Cape Cod, they took on a group of scientists from the Beneath the Waves Conservation NGO, introduced by the International Seakeepers Society, for one of the very first studies conducted on a large and very little-known fish called mola mola, or ocean sunfish, in its environment. They joined us from their Alpaca farm in Vermont on Thanksgiving eve to talk about their experience with Calliope’s first scientific mission, and what they plan to do next. Find out what happened when they opened their boat to the scientists, helped look for the elusive mola mola, what they found out about the fish, and if there will be a next time.
