Lurefjorden Catching Jellyfish. 11th June 2016

The RV Solvik returned to Lurefjorden to catch Periphylla jellyfish to use as bait for the deep-sea scavenger lander cruise in Sognefjorden.  

60 Periphylla were caught on Saturday evening and Sunday morning near Hundvin, Lurefjorden.  20 Periphylla were also dissected for their gonads and sensory organs for Graihagh Hardinge at the Natural History Museum, London to help with ageing  Periphylla.
