Dr. Robert McCauley (Curtin University) This project will contribute to linking observations of oceanography, zooplankton, fish choruses and blue whales in the Perth Canyon, a biological `hotspot`. Specific aims of the voyage are to carry out fine scale sampling of the Perth Canyon, as per:
  • Carry out oceanographic measurements at the eastern canyon end to link with modelling;
  • Map and discriminate zooplankton communities about the canyon using acoustic backscatter;
  • Physically sample zooplankton and pelagic fish communities about the canyon;
  • Study the sources of evening choruses known to occur around the canyon.
