Aquascope Facts

Within the contents of Aquascope there are many ”but´s”, ”maybe´s”, ”we believe” and other expressions of uncertainty. We who have created Aquascope try to supply you with knowledge that is based on reliable scientific investigations and content, but this does not always exist or is unavailable. Often when investigations have been conducted, we have been unable to verify that they have been conducted in a correct manner.
    We hope that you who look for knowledge in Aquascope realize that our expressions of uncertainty are because we know the rigid demands of a scientific investigation, and that correctly conducted investigations are not common. We can only hope that people continue to study the sea so our knowledge can grow and become better.
