Cruise summary report

Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RRS John Biscoe (74JB)
Cruise identifierJB04
Cruise period1983-07-27 — 1983-09-29
StatusCompleted
Port of departureStanley, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)
Port of returnMontevideo, Uruguay
ObjectivesThe primary objective was to investigate krill physiology and behaviour at a time when concentrations of the primary food source (phytoplankton) were low. However, low krill populations were encountered and an alternative study of ichthyoplankton was used to occupy the remaining cruise time.
