During 2005-2007 the replica of the Swedish East Indiaman "Götheborg" sailed to China around the world and back home - with Virtue discs attached to the front of the ship's bow. After each leg, the discs were replaced with fresh new.  Thousands of visitors got a glimpse of the organisms settled in the waters of the Atlantic and Indian Ocean and along the coasts of Europe, South America, Africa, Australia and Asia.
