PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To investigate the distribution of juvenile commercial gadoids in the inshore grounds on the west coast of Scotland, with particular reference to habitat preference.
2. To collect samples of cod, haddock and whiting for analysis of reproductive development , genetics and otilith chemistry.
3. To tag cod, haddock and whiting, when time allows.
4. To take samples of various fish species throughout the cruise to determine the prevalence of IPNV in wild fish. Samples will also be taken at each location for bacteriology, parasitology and virology to test for the presence of disease agents.
