Attention plankton enthusiasts - AusCPR issues first survey newsletter

The AusCPR newsletter has been created to give people more information about the survey, what we do, what we have found so far and our plans for the future. It summarises the highlights of the first 2 years of the survey and hopefully will encourage people to use our data which is freely available through IMOS. Included are project updates from Brisbane, Hobart and Perth, as well as data summaries, towing and shipping information, species lists, recent events and a health and safety feature on the importance of microscope ergonomics (a good article to pass on to colleagues that spend long hours at the microscope).

The newsletter will be issued every 6 months. If you wish to be added to the 'AusCPR Survey Friends and Supporters List' and receive newsletters and research updates please email

We hope you enjoy the read.
