Prince Edward Island Fishermen's Assoc.

The Teleost (a DFO research vessel) is currently collecting oceanographic data around Prince Edward Island for the Atlantic Zonal Monitoring Program (AZMP). This is a big project collecting significant data including temp, salinity, acidification, etc. The vessel is also signed up for the mackerel egg study.

As the AZMP leads them all over the gulf they have side projects that they do at the same time.  A third project for the vessel under this timeframe is collecting info on marine mammals, sea birds and hydro acoustic data collection.  They are scheduled to be in the southern gulf for the month of June.
