Usually seismic (and MT) stations would be given some meaningful code such as the name of the local area. Here the scientific group gave the station names helpful codes that indicate the order of deployment and the type of instrument. However, the technical group thought of it other ways. Following a thoughtful group effort they preferred naming the instruments in honor of fish. They also seem to enjoy crossing the names out once the ‘fish’ is in the water.
