ObjectivesTo carry out a stratified random survey of sandeel density over the Wee Bankie and Marr Bank (the previous ELIFONTS project study area) using a Day grab. Sampling strata were based on a previously determined RoxAnn based habitat map. Spatial variation in the temperature and salinity profiles thourgh the water column over the main ELIFONTS Wee Bankie/Marr Bank study area was also determined using a Seabird CTD sampler.
