Duration: 32.00 days

Region: N Queensland, Gulf of Carpentaria

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

Description: Southern Surveyor cruise SS 01/93 was undertaken to carry out a fish survey, and benthic sampling in the areas of the far northern zone of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the northern Gulf of Carpentaria fishing zone and to also carry out net comparisons in the western Torres Strait and west of Albatross Bay. Cruise objectives included to determine the species composition and abundance of the fish community; investigate the fish habitat by characterising the benthic flora and fauna; obtain images of the bottom structure with a video camera; collect hydrological data; collect seabird data; to compare the relative impact of fish trawl nets on the bottom structure; survey the abundance of commercial species of lutjanids and lethrinids; collect samples of Lutjanus malabaricus and L. sebae for population genetics studies; collect specimens for the I. S. R. Munro Fish collection in Hobart and to collect cephalopods (Museum of Victoria and QDPIF).
