PLUTO webcam

Welcome to the Plymouth Underwater Teaching Observatory (PLUTO), streaming live underwater video from the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth Sound. 

During the summer of 2017, we ran the 'Sea Life Live' project with the National Marine Aquarium, to raise awareness of marine life and help you to experience the marine environment. Whilst this project has come to a close, we are still keen for you to report any sightings of marine life from our PLUTO camera.
