Description
The Continuous Underway Fish Egg Sampler (CUFES) is a, recently
developed, plankton sampling device that provides
high-resolution maps of fish eggs by sieving the eggs from water
pumped from a fixed depth (usually 3 m) while a survey ship is
underway. Concurrently, environmental data are collected, stored
and processed by means of a set of instruments and probes,
installed onboard, and software that handles the
information. Most systems record date, time, position (GPS),
water flow, temperature, conductivity (salinity) and
fluorescence (chlorophyll).
