Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the one project that actually measures oceanic currents directly (and continuously) is the RAPID MOC project. To my knowledge, there is not a similar project for the Labrador current.

The article describes a coral growth ring study, meaning a proxy study, which may imply that not a single current measurement was taken. Perhaps a few were taken (snapshots over the years). As I tried to explain in Frank's diary, taking snapshot measurements from ocean currents is a method riddled with statistical uncertainties and wouldn't give a proper picture.
