Copper Mesh Installation

We have recently been seeing lots of images of fish fins in the SPC2 data. It turns out that several juvenile Garibaldi and other small fish have decided that the camera ports make a nice home and perhaps even a good place to catch plankton. To help keep these fish out of the field of view of the cameras, we installed 0.5″ opening copper mesh around each camera on Monday this week. Below is a video showing the result of the installation and several of the fish that were previously swimming around in the field of view.
