Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Scotia (748S) cruise 1000S
Short name 1000S
Objectives and Narrative 1. To participate in an ICES coordinated acoustic and mid-water trawling survey in the north western North Sea and north of Scotland between 58deg to 61deg 30' N and 4deg W to 2deg E, excluding Norwegian and Faroese waters.
2. To obtain samples of herring for biological analysis, including age, length, weight, sex, maturity and ichthyophonus infection.
3. To obtain hydrographic data for comparison with the horizontal and vertical distribution of herring.
4. To carry out an acoustic inter-calibration with the Norwegian research vessel GO Sars.
