Narrative

FRV Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1100 hrs on 6 January. Sampling commenced at 1410 hrs in respect of the Scottish Coastal Eutrophication Assessment Survey (SCEAS) objective with water samples being taken every 15 minutes throughout the cruise. The WFD sites at the Ythan and Peterhead were sampled before passage to the Fladen Ground where sediment sampling commenced at 2300 hrs on 6 January. The twelve stratified random sites were completed by 2145 hrs on 7 January. Two trawls for nephrops were undertaken and at 0100 hrs on 8 January, passage to the Moray Firth commenced as the weather forecast precluded proceeding to the Shetland sites.

In the Moray Firth sampling commenced at 0845 hrs on 8 January. Fifteen stratified random and two fixed sites were completed, with one trawl at NMMP105 and 2 trawls at NMMP95. The vessel finished trawling at around 0915 hrs on 9 January. The weather forecast for the North Coast and Minches was poor therefore; the decision was taken to leave the WFD sites at Wick, Dounreay, and Eriboll for the return leg and to proceed to the Minches with all speed.

The weather deteriorated quickly and as we left the shelter of the North Coast at around 2030 hrs on 9 January SC
