Survey InvestigatorDescription
SS 01/91

J.A. Koslow (CSIRO) Southern Surveyor cruise SS 01/91 was undertaken to carry out a fish survey in the Western Deepwater Trawl Fishery (WDWTF) off the west coast of Western Australia between North West Cape and Cape Leeuwin and out to the 200 m isobath and the AFZ boundary. Cruise objectives included to identify the distributions of fish, squid and crustaceans by latitude and depth; map the distribution of fishing grounds; provide information on catch rates, abundance and catch composition of dominant fish species in relation to depth and locality; to provide a description of the WA slope fish community; to obtain taxonomic specimens and photographic records of slope fish species.
