Abstract

Photograph of a rainbow parrotfish (Scarus guacamaia), tranquilized with special anaesthetic, being moved from its cave to a net bag for transfer to the PUTS (Portable Underwater Talking Station) where a small ultrasonic transmitter will be surgically implanted underneath the fish's dorsal fin and used for tracking. The PUTS is a small house-like structure next to Hydrolab which has a pocket of trapped air that allowed divers to swim in and talk with one another without having to reenter Hydrolab. Hydrolab was an underwater laboratory located on the seafloor which allowed scientists to live and work underwater for extended periods of time. At the time of the photograph, Hydrolab was located at a depth of approximately 50 feet in Salt River submarine canyon, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.Photograph by Clarendon Bowman.
