Monthly cruises were carried out between March 1986 and April 1992, at
twenty-one stations in Albatross Bay, Gulf of Carpentaria. Prawn
larval densities were measured and salinity-temperature profiles
taken. This metadata record is sourced from 'MarLIN', the CSIRO
Marine Laboratories Information Network.

The originating project was the Tropical Fish Ecology Project: Gulf of
Carpenteria studies. The Tropical Fish Ecology project over this time
period carried out work on fish as peneid prawn predators in
Albatross Bay and the Embley Estuary, and as tiger prawn predators at
Groote Eylandt; fish surveys of the Gulf of Carpentaria; and the
biology of tuna baitfish in the Solomon Islands, Kiribati, and the
Maldives (work commissioned by ACIAR).
