PELMON Project - Methodology PELMON Project - Methodology

1) Hydrography

  • CDT profiles (temperature, salinity)
  • Dissolved oxygen

 

 

2) Plankton

  • fitoplankton (flourometric analyses of chlorophyll a concentrations; structure of fitoplankton community)
  • zooplankton (structure of zooplankton community; food analyses of target fish species)

 

 

 

3) Small pelagic fish - target species (sardine, anchovy, sprat)

  • sampling with mid-water trawl net
  • sample structure analyses of target species

 

 

4) Acoustics

  • sampling with scientific sounder SIMRAD EK60 (38kHz, split beam)
  • acoustic post-processing – EchoView software
  • GIS analyses (ArcView software)
