Abstract

The present report describes the demersal fish fauna collected by otter trawl from RV Advance II on cruise EPA-7801 in the vicinity of a radioactive waste disposal site (R.D.S.) located at a depth of about 3900 m, approximately 200 miles due east of the Virginia coast (Figs. 1, 2). Because the sampling· effort at the R.D.S. was restricted by time and funding, the limited data base accrued from there was analyzed and compared with a much larger data set collected during previous deep-sea trawling studies using the same trawl gear.
