Science / project plan

This research project aims to assess the physical and chemical oceanography, primary and secondary productivity in Disko bay . In combination with the yearly in-shore fishery surveys with RV Sanna, sampling will be performed along transects from glacier to the mouth of the fjord. This will provide additional data which will improve our understanding on in-shore fishery.
