The Eye-In-The-Sea deployed on the edge of the brine pool

The Eye-in-the-Sea is deployed on the edge of the Brine Pool, over 2,100 ft deep in the Gulf of Mexico. A hagfish is already investigating the green bait bag used to attract animals. The temperature is 6º C. The two other traps have timed doors that close at predetermined intervals to capture unsuspecting benthic fauna.
