Dataset: Southern Surveyor Voyage SS 04/92 Biological Field Data Sheets


This record is an entry for Biological Field Data Sheets from Southern Surveyor cruise SS 04/92. This cruise took place in waters off southern Tasmania during 3 November - 1 December 1992, under the leadership of Tony Koslow. Biological data collected on this cruise include demersal fish, micronekton and zooplankton samples to examine vertical distribution and diurnal movements. Dominant fish and zooplankton species to examine the diet through stomach content and stable isotope analyses. Estimates of zooplankton biomass, primary productivity and the concentration of chlorophyll-a at the trawl site and cross-slope transects. Flux of detritus estimates through the water column. Acoustic data of midslope fishes including target strength sampling in conjunction with net sampling. Please note: The Biological Field Data Sheets recorded during this voyage have been scanned to PDF, and are available on-line. See the data link (below).
