PurposeResearch
Objectives1. Demersal trawling survey of the grounds off the north and west coasts of Scotland and Irish Sea.
2. To collect sea water samples at Cape Wrath for SEPA.
3. To collect quantity of oiled well cuttings by grab at abandoned well site in block 13/28.
Scotia sailed at 1200 on 2nd March and, after obtaining samples for objective 3, proceeded with trawling survey. All stations were completed with CTD being deployed when operational and weather allowed. Thermosalinigraph operated throughout trip. Water samples collected as needed for objective 2. Vessel returned to Aberdeen early hours of 20 March 2000.
