Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 0900 on Saturday 11 March, and proceeded to make passage to the first trawling station at position 58.42N 04.26W. Fishing commenced at 0930 on 12 March in strong to gale force southerly winds, with 3 hauls completed for the day, Scotia proceeded overnight into the Minch. With a settled weather outlook Scotia completed the Minch stations and then worked west and south, trawling continued for the next 8 days with 39 hauls being completed prior to the mid trip break. Scotia docked in Dublin at 0730 on 21 March for the half landing and to facilitate personnel changes. On sailing from Dublin at 1030 on 22 March, Scotia completed the remaining Irish Sea stations and made passage to the Clyde. Trawling continued in the Clyde, Tiree, Skerryvore, Stanton Banks, Summer Isles, Butt of Lewis and West Orkney regions until 1330 on 30 March. With the survey completed Scotia made way for Aberdeen and docked at 0700 on the morning of 31 March.
