Video Plankton Recorder
Video Plankton Recorder system shows underwater and shipboard components (the V-fin towfish is shown). The VPR is towed off the side of the ship and is moved up and down in the water column. At the same time, video is processed on board to extract in-focus images, identify them to major taxa, and display their distributions.
