Recovering Clelia

Recovering the Clelia during a dive earlier in the South Atlantic Bight Expedition. Note the swimmer and cable that is attached to the mother ship. High seas such as those experienced today would jeopardize safe launch and recovery for those in the water as well as on the ship. Image courtesy of Islands in the Stream 2001, NOAA/OER.
