Introduction

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

Cruise Inventory Information

Long name FRV Scotia (748S) cruise 0403S
Short name 0403S
Objectives and Narrative 1. Demersal trawling survey of the grounds off the north and west coasts of Scotland and Irish Sea.
2. To obtain temperature and salinity data from surface and seabed at each trawling position.
3. To collect information on the distribution and reproductive development of cod.
4. To collect samples of cod, haddock and whiting for analysis of reproductive development, genetics and otolith chemistry.
5. To tag cod in the Clyde area for investigations of their movements.
6. Recording of EM950 Multibeam Swathe Bathymetry data during all gear tows and recording of multiple frequency acoustic Echosounder integration data for the CATEFA Project.

Physical oceanography  
CTD stations Quantity: number of stations = 74
Description: CTD deployed prior to the start of each trawling station  
Biology and fisheries  
Crustaceans Quantity: number of hauls = 74
Description: One haul of 30 minutes duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.  
Demersal fish Quantity: number of hauls = 74
Description: One haul of 30 minutes duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.  
Other biological/fisheries measurement Quantity: number of hauls = 30
Description: Additional bottom trawls carried out to obtain samples for the cod biological sampling programme (METACOD). Samples of cod collected for length, weight, sex, maturity stage, fecundity and DNA analysis. Cod tagged using acoustic tags and standard flag type tags.  
Pelagic fish Quantity: number of hauls = 74
Description: One haul of 30 minutes duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.
