Where's the Science?

Is Odyssey Marine Exploration, the Florida-based company that discovered a 18th century British warship, talk a good archaeological game? I argued here that the gains to science trump the company’s treasure-seeking motive.   But do they do any archaeology? A reader emails me:

The complaint archaeologists have against Odyssey’s plundering the oceans is that they refuse to document and scientifically record what they find.

Is this really true? I’m going to contact their headquarters tomorrow to find out.
