Krill HydroAcoustic Data

 

We have processed hydroacoustic surveys across the entire California Current Ecosystem - from Port Angeles, Washington to San Diego, California.

The purpose of posting our available data online is to maximize the impact that data can have to help understand and manage open ecosystems.  If you are interested in collaborating with Farallon Institute using the data we have, please reach out to Farallon Institute President, Dr. Bill Sydeman.

 The maps below show the cruise-tracks where data was collected for each year.
