Baited "Crab Shack" Recovery
The ROV Hercules explores a "crab shack," a baited trap deployed on the seafloor to bring in local predators. The science team will conduct stable isotope analysis to better understand the food webs in this environment as part of the Ocean Networks Canada underwater network.
E/V Nautilus will begin her second season in the Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC). ONC operates world leading cabled ocean observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to a broad suite of subsea instruments. The ONC observatory installations span one of the widest ranges of ocean environments found anywhere in the world.
