Winter fieldwork in January 2020 on the research vessel.

10. February 2020

During the end of the first month of the 2020 year, we have conducted a field trip on the research vessel “Salme”. The main goals were to collect animals, sediments and water for the chemical analyses and bio/ecophysiological experiments. Despite the not very calm sea, we managed to accomplish all the tasks outlined. On the shore, in the laboratory, we met the colleagues from Russian scientific institutions, already waiting to help us in organizing the experiments.
