Filmed in the Torngat Mountains National Park, KÖBB Media produced this short documentary video to show how Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientists are working to build a genetic baseline to better understand fish populations.
DFO’s Strategic Science Outreach team gave KÖBB Media the mandate to produce a short documentary video about ocean monitoring in the Pacific Ocean. Our journey started at the Institute of Ocean Sciences in British Columbia where we embarked on a cruise with the science crew to document their work as they surveyed the oceanographic monitoring stations in the Strait of Georgia and Juan de Fuca. The video’s narrative structure is driven by interviews with key DFO scientists. Underwater cameras were used to film below the surface and macro cinematography enabled us to film the microscopic life of the deep. This production was our first experience of flying a drone from a ship to capture stunning aerial footage of the CCGS “Vector” and its crew at work.
