PurposeResearch
ObjectivesThis cruise is in 2 legs (further information in report)
1) Demersal trawling survey of the grounds off the north and west coasts of Scotland and Irish Sea.
2) To obtain temperature and salinity data from the surface and seabed at each trawling station.
3) Trial and evaluate the NOAA Bottom Contact Sensor.
4) Collect additional biological data in connection with the EU Data Directive 1639/2001.
5) Recording of EM950 Multibeam Swathe Bathymetry data and recording of multiple frequency acoustic Echosounder integration data during all trawl tows.
6) To collect squid tissue for genetic analysis.
7) Collection of various ad hoc frozen fish and preserved tissue samples.
8) Identify, quantify and record all Benthic species caught.
