    The instruments used for the DSL studies were scientific echo-sounder for detection, Isacc's Kid Midwater trawl for sampling mesopelagics and the trawl sonde to lower the IKMT to the exact depth at which the DSL appeared. Opening of the IKMT and the temperature of the seawater at which the DSL appeared was also recorded on the trawl sonde system. The echoscope connected to the echosounder showed the DSL in different colours depending upon its density. The continuous monitoring on echogram revealed that the DSL observed at surface during night and at 600 m depth during day.
