The research vessel "Dr. Fridtjof Nansen".
Particular emphasis is put on the distribution of egg and larvae of commercially important fish species, and their behaviour in relation to anoxic water masses found off the shelf break in this zone. The survey started in Walvis Bay on the 7th February and will end the same place on the 23rd February.
The Fridtjof Nansen will then continue with new scientific crew on the annual swept area survey off Angola with the intent of estimating the abundance and distribution of the main demersal fish resources in Angola.
