Abstract

This folder contains field data from the Te Vega cruise 5, conducted by Stanford University, 1964. Included is a summary of data for individual hauls (probably published after cruise). A printed map of the cruise track is annotated to show the route of the cruise. The map shows a path through the Indian ocean from the east coast of Africa to Sri Lanka and ending in Malaysia. Includes a typed list of specimens that were examined by R. H. Gibbs, Jr. A photocopied log of fishes (except eels) taken on the cruise is also included. The log is annotated.
