The U.S. Navy's Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle AVALON (DSRV-2) was used to locate low-level radioactive waste containers and make observations of deepwater benthic fishes and invertebrates at the 900 m (2952 ft) radioactive waste disposal site approximately 4.4 km SW of the Farallon Islands off San Francisco, California. During the three hours on the bottom in depths of 975 to 1039 m (3198 to 3408 ft) five identifiable species of demersal fishes were observed.
