Beam Trawl Videos

As part of the hypoxia project we are investigating the in-situ escape response of newly settled flatfish, in relation to background dissolved oxygen levels. We use a beam trawl, with a camera mounted on top, to observe the behavior of the fish once the sampling gear approaches them. Video clips show images collected over four different locations along the Newport Line (OR, ~44.50N).

Thanks to Waldo Wakefiled (NOAA, NWFSC) and Chris Toole (NOAA) for gathering and editing these images.
