At last, I had my first encounter with pteropods! This morning, I set off on the dingy with Nina and Aafke to search for them. I did a few plankton net trawls in Murchinson Fjord at Kinnvika Bay and I realized the water was actually full of them!! I’ve taken a few samples to analyze them in Southampton using scanning electron microscopy. I have also taken samples for carbon chemistry analysis and in the next few days I will continue sampling them to start my incubation experiments.
