Every­thing is pre­pared for the qual­i­ty test of the fish tank

High qual­i­ty fish tanks are essen­tial for live sam­ples of polar cod to keep the caging effect as low as pos­si­ble for sub­se­quent eco­tox­i­co­log­i­cal exper­i­ments. To ensure prop­er han­dling con­di­tions, 17 vol­un­teers of the Car­bon­Bridge project (https://site.uit.no/carbonbridge/) exam­ined the qual­i­ty of the fish tank (water tem­per­a­ture, tank size and depth) on 80.5°N, 15°E under the harsh con­di­tions in the Arc­tic Ocean. The fish tanks were found good in all aspect.
