PurposeFisheries
Objectives1. To participate in an ICES-coordinated acoustic and mid-water trawling survey in the north western North Sea and North of Scotland between 58º to 62ºN 4º 30'W to 2ºE excluding Norwegian and Faroes waters.
2. To obtain samples of herring for biological analysis, including age, length, weight, sex, maturity and ichthyophonus infection.
3. To obtain thermosalinograph recordings of surface temperature and salinity throughout the survey area. CTD (and XBT) profiles of temperature and salinity at depth for analysis with herring distributions.
4. To obtain measurements of herring density using autosub.
5. To carry out an acoustic intercalibration with RV Tridens.
