AAL carries plankton recorder

July 27 - AAL is supporting the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS) through the installation of a continuous plankton recorder (CPR) onboard its multipurpose vessel AAL Melbourne.

The AAL ship will tow one of the CPR devices during its voyages through the Pacific, enabling SAHFOS to collect data on plankton populations in these waters.

The results will contribute to international charity SAHFOS's CPR Survey, which is one of the world's longest running marine biological monitoring programmes, and will make an important contribution to the organisation's research on a wide range of ocean science and environmental issues, including climate change, pollution, biodiversity and over-fishing. 

The plankton recorder was installed onboard AAL Melbourne at the Canadian port of Squamish.
