Crab pods used on survey

Survey targeting snowcrab and juvenile cod.

The snowcrap survey uses  crabpods 10 pods per station with 8 with normal meshsize targeting males and 2 finemeshed pods targeting recruits and females

The juvenile cod survey uses gillnets with varying meshsize (16mm,18mm,24mm,28mm and 33mm) to target juvenile cod ages 1-4. 

since the survey uses pasive gear, waiting time is combined with bentos dredges, bottomtrawl, hydrography and more.

Potential guest researchers or students wishing to participate in the surveys with special projects, please contact GINR or contact person directly.
