VPR deployment

Fishing for Microfauna

Ian Smith (left) and WHOI Corporator Barbara Wu (right) help associate scientist Mark Baumgartner deploy a video plankton recorder (VPR) from the fantail of R/V Tioga. Baumgartner and assistant scientist Gareth Lawson study zooplankton and their relationship to marine megafauna such as whales and tuna. The VPR allows them to quickly measure the distribution of zooplankton in the ocean. Some 20 guests of the Ocean Institutes observed the deployment in Vineyard Sound on October 12. (Photo by Jayne M.
