The Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS) has been home of the CPR Survey since 1990. In April 2018 it was incorporated into the Marine Biological Association, where the CPR Survey will continue to operate. Herewith is a report of the activities of SAHFOS during 2017 and up to March 2018.
The Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) Survey has been running since 1931 collecting plankton (coupled with ocean physical, chemical and biological observations) with the resulting data providing information on the biogeography and ecology of the planktonic community. The results of the Survey are used by marine biologists, scientific institutes, governmental bodies and in environmental change studies across the world.
