NOAA Photo Library Image - fish2769

A derelict gill net continues to 'ghost fish' at Farnsworth Bank, near Santa Catalina Island in southern California. In this case, a shark has recently become entangled in the net and died. This photo was taken by the Southwest Fisheries Science Center's remotely operated vehicle (ROV) at approximately 50m.
