Abstract

During operations of the Johnson SEA-LINK submersible in the Lesser Antilles in 1989 and off Belize and Mexico in 1990, we collected sea cucumbers at depths between 45-235 m. Examination revealed a high incidence of tenuis larvae and exceptionally large and deeply pigmented adult pearl fish in Holothuria lentiginosa and Eostichopus arnesoni.
