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.
