On-board Diary: On the way to Faro
Author: Silvia Garcia, marine scientist
Date: September 28, 2012
Everything is set, we are now off to Faro to pick up two researchers from the University of the Algarve, who will join us for two days of work in front of Faro before we leave for the Gorringe bank. We are still depending on the forecast, so maybe we spend one more day here, then leave for the Gorringe and on the way back we finish the work here. Now it is about diving in an area where trawlers don’t work regularly, in order to compare it with the situation of neighbouring, similar areas but heavily trawled.
