A Periphylla periphylla at 50 m depth, photographed by a drifting time-lapse camera

Main topics that could benefit from a cable based observatory

  • Ecosystem dynamics
    • when do things happen?
    • Horizontal and vertical migrations
    • Species interactions
    • Fish and zooplankton abundance and distribution
  • Fish and zooplankton behavior
  • Climate change
  • Human impact assessment

Specifications of localization

  • Deep fjords (test and experimental site)
  • Transect from coast to ocean below NCW
  • Ocean hubs – biological hotspots
  • Sections monitoring –to cover ocean circulation, plankton/fish larvae drift and fish migration to and from spawning
  • Areas with heavy fishing
  • Oil drilling fields
  • Particular sensitive locations for human impact
