Sediment coring took place in Lurefjorden to determine how a jelly-dominated ecosystem can influence the foraminifera composition within the fjord. Comparisons will be drawn between Lurefjorden, where the jellies are, and Masfjorden, a fjord with no Periphylla. Cores were taken today from 3 different sites in Lurefjorden, at depths of 444 m, 350 m and 200 m.
