dwc:eventRemarksMost of the cavefish collected were in a shallow (15 cm) pool after a series of jagged rocks in a pool with a side channel off to the right (looking upstream). Pool is in an area that requires stooping and then crawling. One other specimen was collected in a very narrow, drying side channel that is in the main passageway to the left (you have to walk that way). It was in a couple inches of water.
