A view of the cuttlefish mariculture area at the NRCC in Galveston, TX. The tanks in the foreground are large shallow grow out tanks (approx. 2m X 4m X 0.4m) for cuttlefish. The tanks in the upper right quadrant of the photo are part of the water filtration system. All culture systems at the NRCC are closed seawater system where the seawater is continually filtered to maintain water quality. Note two technicians in the background for scale.
