9. To carry out deepwater trawling during the spawning season at Anton Dohrn Seamount, east of the Rockall Plateau, the shelf edge and Rockall Bank.

Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at 1000 (all times are GMT) on Friday 27 April for the start of the JONSIS standard section. On route a test dip of the 911+ CTD was performed. CTD measurements and water sampling commenced at 2232 on Friday 27 April. The line was completed at 0934 on Saturday 28 April (Stns.130-141).

Scotia then made passage to the start of the most southerly (60 0.00'N) of three CTD lines, East of Shetland 1. Work commenced at 1632 on Saturday 28 April and was completed at 0508 on Sunday 29 April (Stns.142-153). Scotia proceeded to the start of the CTD line East of Shetland 2 and worked commenced at 0852. CTD stations were worked until 1042 on Sunday 29 April up to the inner most mooring East Shetland 1 (60 34.43'N 000 38.13'W). Work then commenced to recover this mooring and the outermost mooring East Shetland 2 (60 28.55'N 000 07.92'W). During recovery operations of both of these moorings, messages transmitted from the acoustic releases at both moorings indicated that the moorings had been released. However, the moorings remained in position.
