ObjectivesAIMS:
1. To conduct a standard underwater TV survey of Nephrops burrow densities on the Farn Deeps grounds, 55 35 N to 54 45 N and 01 30 to 00 40 W, and to evaluate Nephrops abundance for comparison with previous years.
2. To collect concurrent video data, using a second camera, which will be directly comparable with that collected from other Nephrops grounds.
3. To characterise sediment features at and between TV survey stations using a remote acoustic seabed discrimination system (swathe bathymetry and QTC).
4. To trial the deployment of a lander for the remote collection of static video observations and environmental data.
