PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis survey aims at estimating the recruitment of a number of commercial fish species, such as herring, cod, haddock, whiting and norway pout. During the survey also hydrographical data are collected.

In each ICES rectangle visited, one haul (30 minutes) will be made with a GOV bottom trawl. After each haul, a profile will be made with a CTD-sonde. In addition, herring larvae will be sampled with a plankton net (MIK).
