As the sun set it was still a beautiful day and the swell of the previous day had almost completely gone. This made sampling quite easy and in good, well reasonably good time we managed to get in three tows two stratified ones and one target trawl. Nevertheless we were still quite occupied until six o’ clock in the morning. This made our total successful nets on the Polar front six out a possible nine.  Quite a success, even more so if one considers that along the main transect w only one station was as well. The catch again brought fort quaint and many marvelous specimens of fish and attracted both the attention of the crew and scientist alike. This last night concludes the RMT 25 sampling. During daytime other scientists hope fully will continue sampling, including some RMT 8 target fishing tomorrow night. However it seems that the wind is picking up and the weather seems to be getting worse again.
