PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To carry out detailed acoustic surveys in selected lochs, the Sound of Sleat and North Minch (if time allows) using the EK 500 to determine the distribution and abundance of herring and sprat. Concentrations of pelagic fish will be sampled using the PT154. Species composition and length-frequency distributions of the fish caught will be determined. Sub-samples will be weighed and otolithed to establish age-length and length-weight relationships. Herring samples will be analysed for sex, maturity, Ichthyophonus and Cryptocotyle lingua infection. Sprat samples will be analysed for Lernaeenicus sprattae, L. encrasicoli and Cryptocotyle lingua infection. Stomach samples will also be taken from both herring and sprat.
2. A line of CTDs will be carried out through each loch.
