Thy Mya is a little ship designed for research in the wadden sea. It is a catamaran and the shape of the hull also allows the continuation of the experiments in the wadden sea at low tide. The ship can stand on the sediment until the next high tide allows the continuation of the cruise. During a
biological seminar on island Sylt we made a short excursion with the Mya to catch fish and other inhabitant of the wadden sea.
