Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1000 on 26 January and commenced trawling on the station east of Aberdeen with the GOV trawl fitted with Groundgear 'B'. The Methot Net was then deployed but due to false readings being displayed from the Scanmar system, the net struck the seabed, resulting in damage. With the weather forecast indicating light winds for the next 3 or 4 days the decision was taken to steam east overnight to the outer stations, completing 5 Methot stations through the night. After completing the first haul on the morning of 27 February, the vessel then moved into the Norwegian Sector, completing the Trawl and Methot stations in this area before leaving the sector on the morning of 30 January. With weather conditions turning poor as the day progressed, Scotia completed 2 further trawl stations then proceeded to the Moray Firth overnight in order to work in the more sheltered inshore waters. With 3 Trawl and 6 Methot stations completed (in strong winds), the vessel then moved through the Pentland Firth to the west of the Orkney. Scotia then worked in a northerly direction, covering the stations west of the Orkney and Shetland Isles. With the weather forecast indicating reasonable conditions for a further three days, it was agreed that the vessel should delay the mid cruise-break and proceed in a southerly direction, covering the more exposed stations on the northeastern part of the survey. A further 9 Trawl stations and 24 Methot stations were completed before the vessel docked in Aberdeen on the morning of 7 February.

Scotia resumed work on 8 February at the station east of Peterhead. The vessel then completed the 8 Trawl stations and 18 Methot stations in the general area northeast of Peterhead and east of Orkney Isles before moving south on the night of 11 February to cover the stations on the southern part of the survey area. Scotia then worked continuously on Trawl and Methot stations in the Montrose Bank, Aberdeen Bank and Devil's Holes area before finishing the standard survey area on the morning of 15 February. Scotia then steamed southwest to carry out Methot sampling at 5 stations in an area off the northeast of England in order to fill gaps in the international coverage. With this work completed during the morning of 16 February, Scotia headed for Aberdeen where she docked, before unloading on the morning of 17 February.
