Cruise Inventory Information

Long name RV Cefas Endeavour (74E9) cruise 19/07
Short name 19/07
Objectives and Narrative Aims

1. Recover and redeploy landers at the three sites and additionally the smart buoys at the North Dogger site.
2. Perform scanfish tows to give the water column context.
3. Sampling at frequent intervals (approx hourly) using CTD rosette at the 3 sites with LISST.
4. CTD casts for primary productivity estimates and deck incubations using N15 uptake.
5. Underway measurements for isotopic ratio work from continuous supply.
6. Collect plankton samples for species composition using vertical nets.
7. Deployment of SPI camera over a wide range of sites to characterize inter-site variability.
8. Undertake assessment of benthic flora/fauna assemblage using Jennings beam trawls.
9. Collect samples for isotope analysis of fish, fauna and flora using 2m beam.
10. Collect core profiles, of nutrients, oxygen, chl-a. (NIOZ corer) and sediment profiles.
11. Undertake experiments on productivity and grazing at the three sites.
12. Deploy the benthic sampler.
13. Collect plankton samples using the bio ness multi net.

Narrative

The Endeavour sailed on time at 20:30 and proceeded to the Gabbard mooring site. A CTD and full sample suite were taken with associated net hauls were successfully performed. On passage to the Sean gas field, surface samples were taken along with net hauls. On arrival at the gas field, a SPI survey was undertaken and then contact was made with the lander. While the acoustic release responded, the floats did not pop up. This was then successfully dragged for. Following this coring was undertaken, then the benthic sledge, bio ness undertaken and the cycle of CTDs were undertaken starting with the full sample CTD including nets. In increasing winds on Sunday morning, the ring nets were unusable and the weather conditions unfit for the bioness multi net. After completion of the beam trawls inter linked with the CTD cycle at 14:00, the vessel departed for the oyster ground site via the Scanfish line. The scanfish line was completed over nig
