Bit of a drag

April 28, 2017

We blew the strobe light on our camera late day 2. While we re-soldered the connections, the ship changed tasks and brought out the trawl. 

The trawl collected fish, kelp, shrimps, and sea cucumbers from 410 m depth. We will use stable isotope measures from these animals and examine the community composition to explore the influence on drift kelp in these areas. 



Our trawl from the 'kelp area' was full of kelp (left) and our trawl from our 'no kelp control area' came up with a tiny piece of algae (right)... a promising start.
