Mid Atlantic Ridge

​We are now as far away from land as possible in the Atlantic Ocean – sampling directly above the Mid Atlantic Ridge.

The water composition has changed quite dramatically - going from warm saline water to less saline and colder water. The phytoplankton subsurface peak has moved upwards from 150 to 110 meters.

We have not been catching any European eel larvae lately but instead the much talked-about box jellyfish whose relative in Australia is said to be able to kill a man.
