Objectives1. To obtain further information on the life of post-smolts at sea by intensive fishing at the shelf edge and within the slope current, and with special reference to diel movements.
2. To test experimental net designs for catching live post-smolts in good condition.
3. To investigate post-smolt migration pathways in the North Sea using known hydrographic features of the area.
4. To perform further post-smolt prey observations using stomach contents analysis and plankton sampling.
5. Perform ad hoc CTD surveys in order to describe the environment within which post-smolts are found.
6. To recover any remaining drifters deployed during 0797S Part 1.
7. To obtain any caesium samples remaining after Part 1.
