Survey InvestigatorDescription
FR 04/96

R. Fletcher (WA Fisheries) including other Pis Cruise FR 04/96 was undertaken to determine the distribution and abundance of scaly mackerel (Sardinella lemuru) eggs and larvae including the influence of the Leeuwin Current on the depth stratification of eggs and larvae along the west coast of WA. Spawning season of Sardinella was almost over at the time of cruise and the sampling altered to conduct a more general larval survey from North West Cape to Fremantle. Seabird observations were also conducted to examine the distribution and densities in relation to oceanic factors off WA. Survey methods included vertical and surface plankton tows, EZ tows, ADCP, CTDs and underway instrumentation. Data, water and biological samples were collected for on board and laboratory analyses.
