Dr So Kawaguchi - Krill Ecologist

Using the RV Investigator’s multibeam echosounders, we want to develop the first 3D models of the shape, size, and density of krill swarms underwater, near whales and elsewhere. Krill swarms can be deep or shallow, dense or diffuse, but little is known about the different swarm types and whether some are more attractive to whales than others. We’ll also do some targeted krill trawls to gather information on the species, biomass and size.
