A CPR (Continuous Plankton Recorder) has been set-up and towed behind the AAL Melbourne, to collect and research microscopic marine plankton and record heir population and movement in the Pacific. Plankton are the first and most important rung in the oceanic food chain and used by scientists to study the effects of climate change. We thank the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation (SAHFOS) http://www.sahfos.ac.uk/ and Capt. Zeljko Marega and his crew for their valuable support.
