ObjectivesPart 2:
1. To carry out demersal trawls in each of the sea lochs to determine the abundance, distribution and variation of fish species and any epibenthic mega-fauna using the BT158 trawls and the 2.8m beam trawl where appropriate. At each trawl station the length-frequency of all species will be taken and sub-samples of the major commercial species will be weighed and otolithed. Stomach contents will be removed from selected species for trophic studies.
2. Five grab samples will be taken before trawling, at each of the demersal trawl stations. A CTD will also be done at both pelagic and demersal trawl positions.
