This data set was collected by staff and students at Sea Education Association aboard the sailing/research vessel SSV Corwith Cramer as part of an undergraduate off-campus study program Sea Semester: Marine Biodiversity and Conservation. The cruise track was from St. Croix, USVI to New York, NY, with a stop in Bermuda. Most of the samples were collected using nets deployed along the cruise track on a daily basis.
