With the Southeast Bottom Longline Survey finishing its fourth and final leg, we can begin to reflect on all we documented, tagged, and observed. Our communications interns, Tralee Chapman and Ellie Hartman, went out with the survey and were able to collect photos from different parts of the voyage. Ellie was on the day shift during Leg 1 and Tralee just finished Leg 4 with the night shift. They were able to observe two different sides of the survey and capture photos of their usual and interesting catches!

Photos from throughout the survey show the diversity of animals we saw at sea.
