Fishing for our dinner

28 February, 2010

The Mahi Mahi (a.k.a. Dolphin Fish) on the line, brought in by the Chief Engineer, Steve

This afternoon, while the gravity core was being lowered to the seafloor, some of the crew went fishing and caught a beautiful Mahi Mahi (a.k.a. Dolphin Fish), that the steward is cooking up for dinner.  The Mahi was over 2 feet long, and a gorgeous iridescent blue-green and yellow.

We were planning a “Full Monty” site for today, which means we were going to deploy all instrumentation (the rosette, the in situ pumps, the gravity core, the long core, and the box core), but our first attempt at a gravity core cracked the core barrel, so we have decided to abandon the site to find a site with softer sediments.
