We just wrapped up some extensive field work in Little Cayman with two other research groups from Scripps Oceanography, the Semmens Lab, and the Marine Bioacoustics Lab. The goal of the work was to deploy our AUEs, pingers, plankton net camera, and underwater 360 GoPro camera in the midst of the Nasau Grouper spawning event.
We deployed most of the gear in January but got skunked on the spawning event and also lost a few instruments. We then returned with a smaller team last week to complete the mission and were able to collect some great data with the net camera and the 360 GoPro camera.
