Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 0815hrs on 26 January and after comprehensive safety drills and familiarisation protocols, commenced trawling on the station east of Aberdeen with the GOV trawl fitted with Groundgear "B". The medium term forecast suggested that we were to encounter favourable conditions for the week ahead. As such, Scotia worked east and then north covering the offshore stations that required both ground-gear "A" and "B" to be deployed. With particularly poor weather forecast for Thursday 3 February, plans were made to work in the Moray Firth on that date, ensuring that no time was lost due to weather. MIK sampling was undertaken at a rate of 2 tows per statistical rectangle where trawling events took place. This pattern of operation continued up until 4 February when Scotia docked in Aberdeen for her scheduled half landing.

Scotia sailed again from Aberdeen at noon on 5 February and made passage to an area 45 miles NNE of Aberdeen (45E8), where MIK sampling was undertaken overnight. Trawling survey resumed to the east of the Fladen grounds (45F0) on the morning of Sunday 6 February. The survey progressed up the west of Orkney and Shetland Isles until the evening of 13 February when weather conditions became such that a decision was made to seek shelter at the western approach to Blue Mull Sound. In the afternoon of 14 February, it was agreed to make passage through Yell Sound and take shelter to the north of Whalsay, where Scotia remained overnight. On 15 February, Scotia made way to a trawl station to the east of Bressay. Scotia arrived on station at around 1130hrs but due to weather conditions the vessel dodged on site until 1500hrs, when the decision was made to make way for Aberdeen and terminate the survey.

Scotia docked alongside Aberdeen at 0600 hrs on Wednesday 16 February.
