Alternate Title

Otter Trawl - Fishes

Creation Date

11-1-1977

Description

Photograph of fish retrieved from an otter trawl. An otter trawl is a type of fishing net which is dragged along the seafloor to collect organisms. It has two heavy plates called "otter boards" on each side of the net to hold it open laterally and a weighted chain on the bottom of the net to make it sink to the sea floor. Some of the organisms shown in the photograph may include a yellow stingray (Urobatis jamaicensis) and a flying gurnard (Dactylopterus volitans). This photograph was taken near the Miskito Cays during the research expedition of Dr. John C. Ogden and his colleagues to Miskito Bank, Nicaragua aboard the R/V [Research Vessel] Alpha Helix from October 13, 1977 to November 18, 1977 where their research included studies on seagrasses, fish, sea urchins, and the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas).
