David is currently researching trophic interactions within deep water communities as part of his PhD at the University of Sydney with the SERPENT Project. The purpose of his visits to the Australian Museum was to identify a number of deep water specimens collected of decommissioned petroleum infrastructure and from the RV Southern Surveyor, which recently surveyed the Bass Canyon to depths of 2800 metres. David sought assistance for the identification of the fishes from Ken Graham, Australian Museum Ichthyology Research Associate.
