Measuring and sampling barnacle geese in Kongsfjorden

22 July 2006, 20:00

Our first goose catch.
I planned to catch 25 adults without goslings, we did catch 22. With kayaks we herded the geese to the nets at Amudsen mast. Most of them were already ringed. We measured their body condition and took some blood and faeces samples for analysis.
It was a wonderful opportunity to optimize our procedures.
