Leg 4 is underway, focusing on an area to the south and east of Kodiak Island. Scientists joining us on this leg include Ann Robertson, Jason Waite, Ashley Hovis, and returning for another leg are Ayla Doubleday, Shari Mullen, and David Barbee. A raft of sea otters bid us farewell from Cordova where the Northwest Explorer put in for our leg change. We are in good spirits with good weather and are gathering high-quality data. On this leg, we’re conducting three surface trawls and one mid-water trawl per day, paired with oceanography and plankton sampling at fixed stations.
