Project: Rockfish Recruitment and Ecosystem Assessment

June 12, 2016 to June 26, 2016

NOAA Ship Bell M. Shimada is conducting a juvenile rockfish and ecosystem survey of the northern California Current. The ship is also collecting data on prevailing ocean conditions, examining prominent hydrographic features, and collecting acoustic data for mapping the distribution of fish and krill.
