Gone fishing - The hunt for Leptoclinus maculatus

Leptoclinus maculatus

In a trial sampling for yet another Mare Incognitum project, named "SpitsEco", which soon will be presented on this page, the researchers on R/V Helmer Hanssen were sampling for Leptoclinus maculatus in Isfjorden. Sampling was conducted both by grab and trawl. Main purpose was to test if grab sampling for this species is possible (which it turned out to be), so that it can be sampled during a winter campaign through a whole in the ice, and to collect a larger amount of individuals by trawling for stomach anaylsis. The entire campaign so far yielded it more than 200 individuals which Carl Ballantine dissected and froze for later analysis.
