  • This report presents the reduced oceanographic, chemical and biological data, station lists of plankton and benthic collections, and bathythermograph positions for Cruises 7&8 of the R/V ANTON BRUUN; and station lists of reef and inshore, plankton, benthic, and miscellaneous biological collections, and bathythermograph positions for Cruise 9. Cruises 7&8 were devoted primarily to benthic biology while Cruise 9 emphasized reef and shore collecting in some of the remote island areas in the southwestern Indian Ocean.

  • Cruise 6 of the R/V ANTON BRUUN, originating from Bombay on May 15 and terminating at Durban, South America on July 16, 1964 was the second of 2 cruises on which a special effort was made to smple the meso- and bathypelagic fauna of the Western Indian Ocean.. This report presents the reduced oceanographic, chemical and biological data, station lists of plankton, midwater trawl, miscellaneous biological collections, and bathythermograph positions for Cruise 6.

  • A deep line-fishing survey of various islands and offshore banks in the Western Indian Ocean was made during January and February 1969 by a Royal Society Expedition whose primary objective was to search for the coelacanth, LATIMERIA CHALUMNAE and thereby extend its known range. The survey was carried out from F.R.V. MANIHINE (109 ft O.A.; 208 G.T.); details are given in the itinerary, the fishing gear, fishing methods and the individual species caught, together with a brief discussion on the effect of depth, height of hooks above sea floor and geographical position on the composition of the catches.

  • Cruise 5 of the R/V ANTON BRUUN originated from Bombay on January 26 and terminated at Bombay on May 4, 1963. A special program of longline fishing was conducted to study the distribution and abundance of pelagic fishes in the Western Indian Ocean in the period of northeast monsoon. This report presents the station lists, bathythermograph positions and reduced oceanographic, chemical and biological data for Cruise 5. It includes a summary of the longline catch by stations.

  • This report presents the reduced oceanographic, chemical and biological data, station lists of plankton and benthic collections, and bathythermograph positions for Cruises 7&8 of the R/V ANTON BRUUN; and station lists of reef and inshore, plankton, benthic, and miscellaneous biological collections, and bathythermograph positions for Cruise 9. Cruise s 7&8 were devoted primarily to benthic biology while Cruise 9 emphasized reef and shore collecting in some of the remote island areas in the southwestern Indian Ocean.

  • Cruise 3 of the R/V ANTON BRUUN, originating from Bombay and terminating at Port Louis, Mauritius in 1963, was the first Cruise on which a special effort was made to sample the meso- and bathypelagic fauna on the western Indian Ocean. This report presents the reduced oceanographic, chemical and biological data, station lists of plankton, midwater trawl, miscellaneous biological collections and bathythermograph positions for Cruise 3.
