PURPOSE: Searching for banana prawn schools to study the sex and size composition, movements, and activities of individuals within the school.
This was the second school search cruise with similar results to the first. No boils or schools of banana prawns (Penaeus merguiensis) were found. A possible mark recorded off Duck Creek in 6 fathoms proved to be a school of fish.
