This picture illustrates the rough sea conditions we had during the most of the SSE mission at the Flower Gardens. The wash to the side of the ship is caused by the ship seesawing in the swells. A school of Chubb consistently accompanies any vessel that is moored up at the Sanctuary. (Photo: Emma Hickerson- FGBNMS)
