Sampling in the Arctic during the Polar Night

The fish team has been using a MIK net to sample the pelagic (open water) zone during our cruise. A MIK net (shown in video below) has a large opening and can be towed at certain depths and is eventually brought to the surface.

Things were not so calm the day the fish team brought up this net! Around this time it was -14C with winds up to 17 km/hour. Brrr. Thanks to Malin Daase for this excellent video!
