NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow conducts autumn bottom trawl surveys off the coast of Cape Hatteras, N.C.

The 2019 field season was a busy one for NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow, which logged 23,500 nautical miles--more than enough to circumnavigate the earth. Along the way, the ship conducted 757 bottom trawl surveys, enough to trawl all the way from the ship's Newport, R.I. homeport to Detroit, Mich. The ship also measured oceanographic conditions at 935 sampling stations and surveyed previously unexplored areas of the ocean, some a mile deep, with remotely operated vehicles.
