Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Clupea (74CU) cruise 0202C_1
Short name 0202C_1
Objectives and Narrative This cruise was in 2 parts: 24 to 31 Jan and 31 Jan to 07 Feb. 2002.
Aims for Part 1:
1. To carry out detailed acoustic surveys in selected lochs and the Sound of Sleat, using the Seabat 602 to determine the distribution of herring and sprat. Concentrations of pelagic fish will be sampled using the PT154. Species composition and length frequency distributions of the fish caught will be determined. Sub samples will be weighed and otilithed to establish length weight relationships. Herring samples will be taken for DNA analysis.
2. The CTD will be used at selected stations to monitor variations in temperature and salinity within and between the sealochs.
