Some downtime... at last!

We're lying offshore of Toalanaro, Madagascar, where we are doing a small crew change (we're losing Arrie and Sean and picking up several Malagasy scientists and one South African). The ship is currently here.

I'll post some pictures a bit later of what we've been up to the last few days - it's been all action the whole time with trawling, sorting, identifying and sampling fish and those of us on the ship were getting frazzled under the workload. We've had most of today off so far, steaming to Toalanaro, and then waiting around for customs formalities. This evening, it's back out to CTD stations, a group meeting, and I guess some training of the new people joining us.

On the left, a rare sight indeed - the guest science team relaxing!

Until later!
