Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Scotia (748S) cruise 0310S
Short name 0310S
Objectives and Narrative Objectives

1. Demersal trawling survey of the grounds off the north and west coast of Scotland.

2. Collect abundance data on pre - metamorphosed herring larvae using the 2-meter circular framed methot net.

3. To obtain temperature and salinity data from the surface and seabed at each trawling station.

4. Collect additional biological data in connection with the EU data collection framework (DCF).

Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 0800hrs on 20 February. A familiarisation haul was completed successfully on a clear tow east of Peterhead at the Buchan Deeps with the fishing gear and scanmar sensors performing well. In addition to the usual suite of sensors used to monitor net performance, we also had a Trawleye sensor away during this survey and some additional time was spent configuring this sensor for use during the survey.
With favourable weather conditions, Scotia then made passage north and arrived at the first methot station west of Orkney at 0500hrs on 21 February. This was completed successfully and yielded 6 herring larvae. In addition, 2 calibration tows were completed in order to test the efficiency of the flow meter. Fishing operations commenced on station 5 at 0630hrs the same day west of Orkney.

With moderate winds over the next four days Scotia proceeded west and north successfully completing the fishing and methot stations in the northern most part of the area albeit with the survey trawl suffering constant wing damage on the harder ground that defines this part of the survey area.

Thursday 25 February saw the arrival of storm force NE winds, which had been expected but arrived earlier than anticipated. With the bad weather set to remain for around 48hrs the decision was made to dodge south from St Kilda and then head east in to the Minch where the protection of the islands would hopefully allow fishing operations to resume.
