A classic example of marine debris, a derelict fish/prawn trap continues to 'ghost fish' at 9 Mile Bank, which is approximately nine miles
off the coast of San Diego. Inside the trap, there is at least one bank rockfish (Sebastes rufus). This photo was taken by the Southwest Fisheries
Science Center's remotely operated vehicle (ROV) at approximately 530m.
