Cruise Progress: 30 October 2009

We are now on our last transect off the Mozambique Coast and are slowly making our way back to the Comoros. The past ten days have kept everyone on board occupied with continuous physical, chemical and biological sampling. Since the beginning of the cruise, some 136 CTD and 46 full biological stations have been completed. In addition, one demersal, three mesopelagic and 16 surface trawls were undertaken (see map for CTD stations).
As we are slowly coming towards the end of this cruise, data is being transcribed, the first analyses are being conducted and reports are being prepared. We hope to be able to present at least some preliminary findings before we leave the ship next week.
