HabCam test

Eyes in the Deep

Norman Vine, Jonathan Howland, Hugh Popenoe (left to right), and Scott Gallager (not pictured) use a test tank in Gallager’s lab at WHOI's Environmental Systems Laboratory in May to calibrate the 3-D cameras on a fourth-generation HabCam benthic imaging system. A team from WHOI and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center recently spent six weeks towing the instrument through waters along the continental shelf from Delaware to the Gulf of Maine as part of the NMFS Northeast scallop survey. Information collected by the HabCam will help NMFS better manage the country's $580 million Atlantic sea scallop fishery. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
