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 58° to 61° 30' N and 4° W to 2° E, excluding Norwegian and Faroese waters.
2. To obtain samples of herring for biological analysis, including age, length, weight, sex, maturity and ichthyophonus infection.
3. To obtain hydrographic data for comparison with the horizontal and vertical distribution of herring.
4. To carry out an acoustic inter-calibration with the Norwegian research vessel GO Sars.
