  setting the hook
John Borden "sets the hook" on one of the mooring surface buoys.
Jon Borden, Jason Hyatt and Rich Signell (WHFC) had three action-packed days in the Gulf of Maine from August 13th-15th recovering the eight moorings that were deployed April 6th-10th, 2000, as part of the Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms Project in the Gulf of Maine. The USGS is one of nine institutions taking part in this study to determine the connections between eastern and western Gulf red-tide populations and to improve our ability to predict red-tide outbreaks. The moorings, set in water depths of 80-220 m, had attached current meters, sediment traps, and water-property sensors (temperature, salinity and turbidity).
