Into the Blue Book Club will be reading captivating books about the ocean and marine life. Books can range from fiction, ocean-themed adventures to educational, non-fiction conservation topics. The goal of each choice is to select a book that will not only inform members on a variety of topics regarding marine science and conservation but also bring together like-minded individuals who share a common admiration for our blue planet.

Below the Edge of Darkness: A Memoir of Exploring Light and Life in the Deep Sea
