Crabs and Fish Eggs
Here are some more pics of the piece of plastic grating that was collected off the side of the New Horizon yesterday. The best guess is that the eggs are from a flying fish.
On Thursday, Aug. 6, as SEAPLEX scientists continue towards the North
Pacific Ocean Gyre, a large piece of plastic with crabs and fish larvae
was retrieved from the water using a hand net.
Close up of fish larvae were found growing on the large piece of plastic
with the crabs.
