What Does Osedax Mean?
This is a question we often field, so here is the answer. Osedax is a genus of deep-sea bone-eating worms which feed on whale falls. They are an important part of nutrient cycling in the oceans, and are efficient at cleaning the sea floor of organic debris. Marine biology inspires us. Just as scientists strive to uncover new species of life beneath the seas, we innovate our techniques to provide the best diving services on the market today.
