NOAA Photo Library Image - expl0354

One of the benthic traps on the sea floor, possibly about to catch a crab. These light-tight, insulated traps were deployed from the Johnson Sea-Link II submersible to collect organisms and bring them to the surface without blinding them or damaging their eyes with the relatively bright light at the surface.
