Objectives1) To carry out an acoustic survey to determine the biomass and distribution of pelagic fish in an area off the Firth of Forth, which included the Wee Bankie and Marr Bank. Species composition and length frequency distributions of fish present in the major marks detected during the acoustic survey to be determined by pelagic trawling. Population age structure of the pelagic fish to be determind through otolith analysis.
2) To assess the abundance and distribution of seabirds in the area using standard transect census techniques. The location of all marine mammals observed at sea during this transect survey to be recorded.
3) To map seabird sediment type using the acoustic system RoxAnn.
4) To determine spatial variation in the water temperature and salinity profile within the study area by CTD dips.
5) To carry out a bottom trawl survey to determine the abundance, distribution, length composition and length-weight relationships of piscivorous demersal fish species in the study area. Spatial variation in fish condition to be examined and compared with previous cruises. Spatial variaiton in their diet and food consumption rates to be determined from analyssis of stomach samples taken from length-stratified sub-samples of each catch. Age structure of the piscivorous demersal fish populations to be determined by otolith analysis.
6) To carry out a night-time grab survey, over sediments previously determined as suitable sandeel habitat, to assess sandeel abundance and distribution. The sediment samples collected during this survey will be used to assess the RoxAnn derived sandeel habitat map.
