SEAMAP and NRDA 2010 Fall Plankton Survey (GU1004, EK60)

Primary objectives were to assess the occurrence, abundance and geographical distribution of the early life stages of fall spawning fishes, especially red drum, red snapper and other snapper species, and king and Spanish mackerel, Gulf-wide on the U.S. continental shelf using a bongo frame fitted with 0.335 mm mesh nets and a neuston frame fitted with a 0.950 mm mesh net at selected SEAMAP stations, and describe the pelagic habitat of fish larvae through measurements of various physical and biological parameters including salinity, fluorescence, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and chlorophyll.
