The weather is getting colder, the trees are shedding their leaves, and we have finally finished the field season in the Gulf of Finland! In early October, we made the fourth final trip! It was warm in the sun like during the summer, but in the shade and in the wind it was already quite cold, and we tried to work faster. For two days we came across only a few sticklebacks, both adults and young, and, oddly enough, there were very few other fish as well. Now we can finally put away your field equipment, relax … and start processing the material!
