The shrimp Pandalopsis ampla on the side of a shipping container sitting at 1280 meters just outside of Monterey Bay. In 2004, the ship Med Taipei, lost 15 shipping containers just outside of Monterey Bay. Later that same year, MBARI discovered one of these containers resting on the seafloor at 1280 meters below the surface. From March 8-10, 2011, MBNMS and MBARI scientists revisited this shipping container to document its condition and collect sediment cores and organisms for further study.
