We find out about the best job in the world on Naked Oceans this month as we take a look at what its like to work in the ocean realm. Sarah chats with a host of marine scientists who work in one of the top spots in the world for ocean research.

And in Critter of the Month we meet a playful denizen of British waters that like nothing more than messing about with human scuba divers.
