Groundfish Ecology Cruises

Metadata Updated: March 1, 2024

This program involved a series of one day cruises on a commercial trawl and longline vessel. Cruises were conducted once per month from 2001-2005. The objectives of the cruises were: collect monthly biological data on all groundfish observed, examine spatial and temporal distributions. An added feature was the use of commercial vessels operated by experienced commercial fishermen. All cruises were conducted in the Monterey Bay area (California).
