Abstract: Dr. Charles M. Breder, Jr. participated in the 1934 expedition of the Atlantis from Woods Hole, Massachusetts to Panama and back and kept a field diary of daily activities. The expedition was a milestone in the history of scientific discovery in the Sargasso Sea and West Indies. It was the first attempt to investigate in detailed quantitative manner biological problems about this varying, intermittent 'false' bottom of living, floating plants and associated fauna. During the expedition, Breder collected rare and little-known flying fish species and developed a method for hatching and growing flying fish larvae.
