Ring of Fire 2006 Expedition. Daikoku Volcano. A pebble-covered seafloor with numerous tonguefish whose coloration is almost a perfect match for the seafloor in this area. A large white crab and two small white crabs are visible in the image. The red laser dots are ten centimeters apart, providing a scale for determining size of fauna.
