PurposeResearch
Objectives1. To conduct a survey of Nephrops burrow densities on the Farn Deeps
Nephrops grounds, 55 degrees 35' - 54 degrees 45' N and 1 degree 30' - 0 40' W, by underwater TV to examine spatial patterns in the distribution of burrows at
different spatial scales; to measure variance for replicated counts and to
evaluate Nephrops abundance for comparison with previous years. The
aim will be to sample ten clusters of six stations each to be sampled three
times giving a total of 180 sledge tows, for comparison with the same
locations worked in October 2001.
2. If time allows to sample some other stations regularly sampled in previous
surveys.
