Completed this years sampling

Map of Study area

During this years research cruise from 16-27 June we performed sampling along 6 transects and at 18 stations, using a variety of sampling instruments. See who participated at the intense sampling here.

Our first study area was off the coast of Vesterålen islands, where we found high numbers of our key study species, the copepod Calanus finmarchicus.

After completing sampling there, we moved to study patches of this species at Tromsøflaket, a known fishing hot spot.
