In 1994 a cruise of alltogether 4 weeks took place in the North Atlantik, west of Ireland. One intermediate stop in Gallway (Ireland) was sheduled to change crew members.
The main task of this cruise was the investigation of the recruitment of fish larvies offshore Ireland, shelf edge fisheries and oceanography studies. Moreover we obtained CTD measurements in the area of the Porcupine Bank as well as to determine the zooplankton distribution on an extensive grid.
More on equipment we used is shown in the picture gallery of the Heinke 92 cruise into the North Sea.
