NOAA Photo Library Image - fish2771

A classic example of marine debris, a derelict fish/prawn trap continues to 'ghost fish' at 9 Mile Bank, which is approximately nine miles off the coast of San Diego. Inside the trap, there is at least one bank rockfish (Sebastes rufus) . This photo was taken by the Southwest Fisheries Science Center's remotely operated vehicle at approximately 530 meters.
