Survey InvestigatorDescription
FR 06/89

P. Dixon (University of NSW) & M. Tomczak (University of Sydney) Cruise FR 06/89 was undertaken to study and collect whiting (Sillago sp.) and other fish larvae from the waters on the continental shelf off northern New South Wales and to examine their distribution and genetic relatedness in relation to oceanographic data collected in the same region. The effect of the East Australian Current on the water masses on the continental shelf in the same region was also studied. Survey methods included CTD profiles, ADCP, plankton net tows and other associated instrumentation. Samples of water and plankton were collected for on board analysis and laboratory study. Preliminary sorting of the plankton samples indicated that the whiting larvae were patchy in their distribution, being found in ten samples from four generalised areas.
