New Technologies Make Surveys More Efficient
November 16, 2018 —
Wrapping up nearly 5 months of research this week, a landmark study combined new onboard survey technologies with the capabilities of a small fleet of saildrones. Simultaneous observations of krill, fish, marine mammals, and seabirds from Vancouver Island to Southern California will help us better understand the impacts of predators on fish populations. One saildrone remains at sea, exploring shallow coastal waters that large research ships can't safely navigate.
