Description 
Summary

Ten cruises were carried out by R/V 'Agamenon' between the coast of Tenerife and the island of La Gomera. Temperature and salinity data were taken down to a depth of 1,000 metres. With a total of 158 stations, the first 109 focused on the influence the different hydrographic parameters had on tuna fishing. The remaining stations studied the hydrography and the currents off the western coast of Tenerife.
