Catch records from eddy studies off the New South Wales coast, Australia 1979-1980

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Aug 3, 2016 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The data were obtained as part of a time series study of Eddy "J" in the Tasman Sea off the New South Wales Coast. Stations inside and outside the eddy were sampled for hydrology/nutrients, phytoplankton fluorescence and particle size, zooplankton (including organic nitrogen), and midwater fishes using the RMT (rectangular midwater trawl) net. Within the eddy, the most abundant family of fishes in the midwater trawls was family Myctophidae (lanternfishes). Decapod crustacea, salps and squid were also enumerated. Some squid jigging with hand lines was also carried out on two occasions.
