There is a difference between surveying the ocean floor and surveying ocean wildlife. They are different goals. Surveying ocean wildlife is from the snorkel buoys while surveying the ocean floor is from the red buoys. Two different goals though, doing one doesn't count for the other. Mermaids cannot complete survey ocean wildlife at the snorkel buoys as far as I know.

I just found out about this a while ago, it seems like you will unlock "Survey Ocean Floor" when your sim reached career level 8 (Sustainability Specialist). My sims is on level 7 so that's why I don't see that button anywhere.

 

Also, I'm able to get this goal completed once even my sim can't survey ocean life or ocean floor, I just don't how know. I made him did many activities on the beach that day so I didn't realize when it was completed. Devil

I just completed it with a mermaid by surveying a plant.

 

Edit: It was a Taro Plant on the Nature Island but for some reason it's popped again and it's not working >_<

I went to the Lani St. Taz area and found the red buoy finally, but the only options i get are to Free Drive or purchase Dive gear. I am level 7 in the Marine Biologist track and still can't complete the daily task.

for some reason it's not working now. I am sure it did before because I was having the same problem...

Noticed the same in my game - so strange. One should think a marine biologist would be a natural fit! And who if not a mermaid should be able to survey ocean wildlife? :D To me, it seems like an oversight on the gameplay part.

 

Not a major issue of course... you can still wait for another day and another task to complete in order to get to the promotion. But it is annoying and doesn't make much sense to have this restriction.

 

Also tried the discussed options in the thread. Nothing worked.
