2. To collect data on the distribution and abundance of seabirds and cetaceans using ESAS line transect techniques.
3. Collection of Hake DNA samples for Ardtoe Marine Laboratory.
4. To obtain temperature and salinity data at each trawling station.
5. To collect additional biological data in accordance with EU Data Directive 1639/2001 and 1581/2004.

Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1100hrs on 25 January and after onboard 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 which required both ground-gear "A" and "B" to be deployed. MIK sampling was undertaken at a rate of two 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 departed from Aberdeen again on the morning of 5 February and resumed the survey in the Moray Firth. Scotia continued to benefit from exceptionally good weather for the time of year and as such progressed very well working up the west side of Orkney, through Fair Isle waters and up the west side of the Shetland Isles. The survey continued across the North coast of Shetland and then in a southerly direction down the east side, seeing us conclude the designated survey stations to the east side of Orkney on Monday 13 February. Scotia was able to undertake two extra stations and complete fishing operations on the morning of Tuesday 14 February. Scotia made passage for Aberdeen, docking alongside at 1900hrs.
