The first deployment of the cruise was made to 1250 m in Sognefjorden. The lander was baited with 2 dead Periphylla jellyfish and we are interested to learn which scavangers will feed on the jellyfall and especially how the feeding dynamics of scavengers will change with depth. There is more food available at shallower depths so we hypothesise that more scavengers will eat jellyfalls at deeper depths where other food is scarce.
