GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00782

Summary

Abstract:
Biological fishing samples were collected during multiple cruises in the Southern Ocean between Oct 2002 and Jan 2006.

Fishing was undertaken in the area of sub-surface moorings to ground-truth acoustic data being collected. Specifically, RMT (Rectangular Mid-water Trawl) hauls were carried out to learn more about the vertical distribution of plankton, krill, mysids and fish around these particular positions during the day and night time.
