He said the Indonesia Mission 2024 was part of a long-term commitment to explore Southeast Asian waters and increase global understanding of one of the most biodiverse and potentially threatened marine areas in the world.

OceanX is conducting a series of research expeditions in Indonesia together OceanXplorer, touted as the most advanced media production and exploration vessel in the world.
