NOAA Photo Library Image - ship4399

Figure 27. The Aime Olive, a large weight attached to the cable immediately before a bottom dredging device. This weight would keep the dredge in contact with the bottom. Although used by fishermen prior to its oceanographic use, Aime's adaptation of this concept apparently marked its first use in oceanography. Circa 1840.
