A website called "There's Something in the Sea" was launched on March 4th, 2009, giving hints and clues about BioShock 2. It details the investigation and related writings of Mark Meltzer, a father whose daughter has been kidnapped by a Big Sister. The events of "Something in the Sea" were divided up into three phases of Mark's investigation, each with a separate website.

Phase One of "There's Something in the Sea" began March 4th, 2009. It started as a simple map of the world, and over time it was filled with newspaper clipping, notes, and other documents from a person tracking the kidnappings of young girls along the Atlantic coast in 1967. Near the end of this phase, it is revealed that the unknown researcher is named Mark Meltzer. This phase also introduces several other major characters.
