Fish identification

The day shift continued with grab samples and video tows at South of Celtic Deep rMCZ. The seabed that we were surveying consisted of muddy sand with some pebbles. We recorded several different species of fish today with the camera sledge. There is a slight delay on the camera shutter so it always tricky to get the timing right otherwise you just get a photo of a disappearing tail!
