Introduction

This report collates information from the BODC cruise inventory and oceanographic databases. It presents

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 0297C
Short name 0297C
Objectives and Narrative To carry out an echo-integrator survey to determine the biomass and distribution of pelagic fish in the Moray Firth. Trawling was carried out in areas with high densities of pelagic fish in order to determine fish species, size and age composition and weight-length relationships, and to collect samples of herring, sprat and sandeels for subsequent diet analysis in the laboratory. To determine the numbers and distribution of mammalian and avian predators using transect census methods. To determine spatial variation in water temperature and salinity depth profiles using a CTD recorder and to collect water samples for nutrient and chlorophyll analysis. To determine spatial variation in zooplankton density using a Dutch Gulf III sampler.
