Last diary from R/V Dr. Fridtjof Nansen

Even good things have to come to an end and now the Myanmar cruise with R/V Dr. Fridtjof Nansen is over. We have been at sea for 6 weeks and it has been an amazing survey in many ways. We have seen an astonishing biodiversity of fish with wonderful colours and remarkable shapes. We have conducted 150 trawl hauls, 100 plankton hauls and 200 environmental stations (salinity, temperature, fluorescence and oxygen). We have taken more than 500 high resolution pictures of all the fish and crustaceans species caught and we have preserved some fish for further species identification.

Biotopkart Nordland 6

Biotope map for Nordland VI published

MAREANO scientists have now produced a biotope map for the Nordland VI area in Northern Norway. "Biotope" is a term used to describe the main biological communities and the physical environment they inhabit.  MAREANO video data were to determine the biological communities and this information was put together with bathymetry, terrain and geological data to model the overall distribution of biotopes.

Biotopkart for midtnorsk sokkel basert på videodata

Biotopes of the mid-Norwegian continental shelf

A biotope map for the Norwegian Sea based on video data from MAREANO 2012 is now available on www.mareano.no. Biotopes are regions with similar communities of animals living on the seabed, in a similar physical environment. Maps such as these, which bring together the physical and biological attributes of the seabed, can provide particularly valuable information for sustainable management.
