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 hydrographical data is also collected. In each ICES rectangle visited one haul (30 mins) will be made with a GOV bottom trawl. After each haul a profile will be made with a CTD-Sounde. In addition herring larvae will be sampled with a plankton-net (NIR).
