Scotia Arc Expedition 2011 #1-1

'Our first sampling event of the expedition. We hoped to attract scavengers into the crab pot by baiting it with oily fish bait. Although the sea doesn’t look very rough, you can see how much water came onto the deck while the support crew were working to bring in the pots. But guess what? Crab pots seem to only catch crabs!'
