Duration: 32.00 days

From: Darwin To: Cairns

Region: Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Queensland

Ship: Southern Surveyor [details]

Description: Southern Surveyor cruise SS 07/93 was undertaken to test devices for the Bycatch Reduction in Prawn Trawls project in the area of the tiger prawn fishery west of Weipa, Gulf of Carpentaria; to conduct the commercial fish biomass survey with the Frank and Bryce net in the northern half of the GOC as in previous cruise SS 01/93 and to continue the EFN (environmentally friendly net) trials initiated on Leg 2 of cruise SS 01/93.
Cruise objectives include to investigate the efficiency of the EFN in areas with bottom structure; to investigate fish habitats by characterising the benthic flora and fauna at each site; to obtain video images of the EFN, bottom structure and fish behaviour; to collect tissue samples from L. malabaricus and L. sebae for the genetics group in Hobart; to collect fish samples for the I. S. R. Munro Fish Collection in Hobart; to collect leiognathids for J. Smith and Queensland museum staff to collect sponges during the trawls.
