Ben Hunt (right) and Steve Zellerhoff clear one of the fishing holes off the shore of McMurdo Station in Antarctica. Fish are being caught at the holes as part of a project by Arthur DeVries of the University of Illinois, to examine how frigid water passes through their gills without freezing the animals. McMurdo Station is one of three United States research stations on Antarctica. The National Science Foundation operates them all.
