Bottom Trawl Survey Volunteer Presentation

This is a 45-minute automated Power Point Presentation designed for sea-going volunteers who will sail on Bottom Trawl Surveys. The objective is to provide an introductory demonstration of the proper way to use hardware, cutting techniques, where samples are stored, and how FSCS 2.0 software is used to capture data. Prior to the first station of the cruise, your Watch Chief or an experienced member of the staff will demonstrate all aspects of your role on the survey. Note that there is no audio associated with the presentation.
