Our network of ships

Since the first Continuous Plankton Recorder was towed by the SS Albatross between Hull, NE England and Bremen, Germany on the 15th September 1931, more than 300 vessels have helped in a voluntary capacity to maintain the Survey. 
The CPR Survey is greatly indebted to the Captains and Crews of all the tow ships, their ship owners, management companies, charterers, port staff, stevedores and agents. Their support and participation in our global research is gratefully acknowledged.
Details of the shipping companies and photographs of the current participating vessels are available here www.mba.ac.uk/fellows/cpr-survey#b66
