Click to hide meeting description

Michael O'Neil

In January Mike launched the Gulf Stream Orphan Project (www.GSOproject.org), designed to establish a citizen science network of divers, fishermen, and hobbyists in collaboration with marine research institutions to track the species distribution and abundance of Caribbean fish that are swept north along the east coast of the United States and Canada by the Gulf Stream.

Michael O'Neill is an Aquarist for the New England Aquarium's Husbandry Department located in the Quincy Animal Care Center. He has been involved with the aquarium since 2009, and has previously worked as an Educator for Visitor Experience and a Rescue Biologist for the Aquarium's Marine Animal Rescue Team. Currently he is pursuing a Master's in Marine Science and Technology from UMass Boston's School for the Environment.


General Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, at the New England Aquarium Conference Center (located on the first floor of the Harbor Garage). Click here for directions

At each general meeting there will be the monthly drawing for a chance to have a hands on aquarium experience.

GAFC Recep

GAFC Group

We had a great turnout for the 15th GAFC. View all the photos in our scrapbook!

It was a great success with divers submitting over 50 surveys to REEF. Over $3,900 worth of prizes were given away to divers - A huge thank you to all of our fantastic sponsors and volunteers for making this another awesome event!

Don’t forget, you can always fill out REEF surveys for any of your dives by visiting REEF's website, and remember to count fish and invertebrates on every dive!

Every year juvenile fish from warmer waters travel north with the currents. Rhode island is the best place to spot them and every year he have a BBQ, and see what we can spot. September 24th 2016 is your chance to see colorful tropical fish without leaving New England.

Monthly Shoredive

Join us this Saturday, August 20th for our monthly New Member dive. The dive is open to anyone, if you would like to dive, PLEASE make sure you contact shoredive@neadc.org at least two days before the dive. We will be picking the best site (and meeting place) based on weather and tides a few days in advance.

ShorediveAnyone can arrange a dive, dive coordinators only need to be a contact person for the dive.  They are not responsible for leading or supervising the dive, and in fact do not have to dive at all.  If you want to share a favorite spot or try out a new spot, email our shoredive coordinator to volunteer to coordinate a dive, and we'll put it on our calendar.

Visit our shore dive calendar page for a list of upcoming dives, or for last minute dives check our Facebook Page.
