| SEF-Gabo Reef Moorings (1996)
|N. Bax & A. Williams (CSIRO)||As part of the 1993-6 South-East Fishery (SEF) study, 2 moorings were deployed for a period of 10 days on and off Gabo Reef, off the E Victoria/SE New South Wales Coast, during December 1996, in water depths of 114 and 130 m.|
| SS 06/96
|A. Williams & N. Bax (CSIRO)||Southern Surveyor cruise SS 06/96 was the fourth in a series of four cruises studying ecosystem structure and seafloor habitats in the area of the South East Fishery (SEF) off eastern Bass Strait and southern New South Wales. Research objectives included a broad-scale survey of fish, invertebrates, seafloor habitats and their associated faunas, hydrology and zooplankton; sample collection for stable isotope analysis; sampling for phytoplankton pigment studies from the water column and sediments; collect and photograph fish specimens for various guides and handbooks; collect tissue samples from fish and invertebrates for a bioprospecting (AIMS) project; fish samples for ecomorphological analysis (CSIRO) and a photographic survey of the seafloor off Maria Island to study brittle stars. Two current meter moorings were also deployed and retrieved during this cruise.|
| SS 02/96
|A. Williams & N. Bax (CSIRO)||Southern Surveyor cruise SS 02/96 was the third in a series of four cruises to examine the ecosystem structure and seafloor habitats in the area of the South East Fishery (SEF) off the east coast of Tasmania, south eastern Victoria and southern NSW. Research objectives included a broad-scale survey of fish and invertebrates, seafloor habitats and their associated faunas, hydrology and zooplankton; sample collection for stable isotope analysis; sampling for phytoplankton pigment studies from the water column and sediments; photographic survey of the seafloor off Maria Island to study brittle stars; collection and photography of fish and invertebrates for handbook; collect biological material for collaborative studies with other Australian research instituions and stock assessment, and to collect fish samples for ecomorphological analysis.|
| SS 05/94
|J.A. Koslow & A. Williams (CSIRO)||Southern Surveyor cruise SS 05/94 was undertaken to conduct an acoustic survey of blue grenadier in waters off the west coast of Tasmania; examine the South east fishery ecosystem structure/seafloor habitat off south-eastern Victoria and southern New South Wales, and to continue the Maria Island fishery survey off the east coast of Tasmania. Cruise aims included to assess temperature and salinity structure at blue grenadier spawning sites; trawl sampling of blue grenadier; plankton net sampling for grenadier eggs; obtain acoustic measurements of grenadier aggregations; broad scale survey of demersal fishes and benthic invertebrates; collect samples for stable isotope, dietary, and pigment analysis; survey two offshore (mid-shelf) reef areas; collect samples of fish and invertebrates and photograph for "Handbook of Australian seafood" and to collect biological material for collaborative studies with other research institutions and stock assessment.|
| SS 05/93
|J.A. Koslow, S. Rainer & B. Bruce (CSIRO)||Southern Surveyor cruise SS 05/93 was undertaken for the Temperate and Deepwater Fisheries Resources program to conduct research in waters east of Bass Strait and around Tasmania. Cruise is divided into three parts, with a total of four legs. The first part (leg 1) carried out studies on the mid-slope ecology south of Tasmania in the vicinity of an orange roughy fishing ground south of Pedra Branca Island. The second part (legs 2 and 3) carried out demersal trawling/benthic sampling in the South East fishery north of Darcys Patch. The third part (leg 4) carried out an ichthyoplankton survey and hydrological sampling between Bermagui (NSW) and Pt Hicks (VIC). Further sampling was carried out at a series of stations along the west and southern Tasmanian coasts.|
