Names that other countries have for this feature:
A generally triangular shaped ice-covered bay, bounded to the north by Vacchi Ice Piedmont, to the west by Campbell Glacier Tongue, and to the south-east by a line bearing northeast from the tip of Campbell Glacier Tongue to Oscar Point, located north of Terra Nova Bay. This descriptive name is based on the abundance of silverfish (Pleuragramma antarcticum) eggs. The popularity of the locality and its scientific importance to the Ross Sea ecosystem resulted in a common name being assigned.
