"Full fathom five" is a catchphrase deriving from a verse passage, beginning with those words, in Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Its original context, during a storm and shipwreck, is the drowning, in water about 30 feet (five fathoms) deep, of the father of the character to whom the lines are addressed.

Sylvia Plath's FULL FATHOM FIVE poem talked about FATHOM.

It was used to measure the depth of sea earlier.

The measurement method may be used nowadays.

1 fathom = 6 feet.
