The Delaware II returned to Woods Hole Thursday, December 8, blown in by a nor’easter that moved rapidly through the area. Overall we have had a very successful cruise. We collected 71 bongo samples, 46 IKMT samples, 9 neuston samples, lots of images from the VPR, rescued one buoy, and collected our target species with multiple gears in multiple regions.
I want to thank the officers and crew of the Delaware II who worked hard to make sure we efficiently used our time to accomplish our missions.
