Indian-born English doctor, Alfred Alcock (1859-1933), became Surgeon-Naturalist to the Indian Marine Survey in 1888. The survey’s intentions, aboard Investigator, were to safeguard the coastal lines of navigation and to study the hydrography of the basins in the Arabian and Andaman Seas and the Bay of Bengal. Deep-sea dredging operations gathered specimens of natural history during the expedition, like this Raia philipi, or Aden ringed skate which is from the Gulf of Aden in the Arabian Sea.
