This is the blog for the Glasgow University Egypt Marine expedition.

Over the summer in 2016, a small number of students travelled to El Quesir, on the coast of the Red Sea, to carry out a number of scientific projects looking at a range of topics, including coral reef bleaching and the impact of fishing on reef communities.
