Mummichog Minnows
Image Description:
John Boyd observes a bag with two brackish water minnows known as Mummichog Minnows which were on board Skylab 3. The fish were added to the flight at the request of Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott, science pilot. The objective of this experiment was to show what disorientation the fish experienced when exposed to weightlessness. An aquarium of the Minnows, caught off the coast of Beaufort, North Carolina, is in the background.
