E30 Submarine Dive 2 June05


If you've been through the first dive you know the drill... We noticed more wildlife on this one and we freed some more cod from the gill nets which were wrapped around the gear on the foredeck. Aside from the seaslugs we did survey some more hardware...

A suspect map of our dive on Saturday. I was distracted by slugs so we didn't cover as much ground but rescued 3x as many trapped cod. The site had been gill netted since Friday but the main net was away from the wreck.
