Expedition participants change in Naryan-Mar
R/V Kartesh arrived at the receiving buoy in the Pechora Bay to exchange research groups and journalists. The bishop of Naryan-Mar and Mezen Iakov together with father Roman left the vessel, thus completing their missionary work within the frames of the 2016 expedition.
A new group of participants and necessary cargo have been delivered to the vessel from Naryan-Mar by boats. The vessel then headed to Matveev Island to implement the Marine Mammal Council program.
