Yesterday morning at 6:50am EST, a team from CSIRO successfully recovered ANFOG's Seaglider SG154 about 16 nautical miles east-northeast of Pirates Bay, Tasmania.

This marks the end of the historic first ever southern hemisphere Seaglider deployment, which lasted 60 days.  It performed 430 dives, many to 1000m.
