If you wish to continue to follow the cruise blog for the Pelagia CoralFISH/HERMIONE cruise, you will find it on the NIOZ website’s Pelagia Cruise Diary.
51.25.96N, 11.46.40W We have had the luck of the draw with the weather for the first few days; but on this, Day 4 of the CORALFISH/HERMIONE survey, the Atlantic swell has won.
Today marked our first day of work on the HERMIONE/CoralFISH cruise; these overlapping projects focus on areas of biological wealth, which have either high numbers of species or rare species associated with a distinct area.
The R/V Pelagia leaves Galway today (16th October) for a CoralFISH cruise to the North Atlantic, where a number of landers will be deployed as part of the CoralFISH project.
