Survey # 2017403

Transboundary pelagic - South-Eastern Central Atlantic

Period: 21/09/2017 - 17/12/2017  (80 days)
Countries:
Angola - Congo - Democratic Republic of the Congo - Gabon - Namibia - South Africa
Objectives of the Surveys:

The survey addressed abundance and distribution of pelagic resources, environmental conditions within which they are encountered, and aspects of their early life history. The survey also offers an opportunity to opportunistically sample and address other research topics of high interest regionally and internationally. The pelagic realm was sampled in relation to:

  • Hydrographic conditions
  • Phytoplankton, zooplankton, ichthyoplankton and jellyfish
  • Main pelagic stocks
  • Mesopelagic fish and jellyfish
  • Top predators (sea mammals and sea birds)
  • Occurrence of marine debris and microplastics
Survey # 2017402
