|Objectives||Seining. Small catches of haddock were made. Good catches of whiting were also made.
Several days' work was lost due to bad weather. During the third week, the codends were changed to ones of smaller mesh size more appropriate to the stock being fished. A rope around the ship's propellor prevented any further fishing on the last day of the programme.
