Paper Abstract

Limited space and all weather working conditions are requiring the Pascagoula Fisheries Station of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to design a special line of underwater photographic instrumentation systems. Light metals and plastics are being explored in a continuing effort to develop lightweight yet strong and corrosion proof underwater housings. Designs are selected which offer maximum protection from accidental con tact with the sea bottom and the ship's hull. Color is used to enhance or subdue the underwater visibility of both photographic and test gear.
