1. To undertake a nationally co-ordinated demersal trawling survey of anglerfish in the North Sea (Eastern survey area).
2. To obtain temperature data at each trawling station.
3. To obtain net parameter and bottom contact data for each trawling station.
This is a nationally co-ordinated trawl survey to estimate the abundance and distribution of anglerfish. The survey follows a set of protocols drawn up by an industry science survey-planning group made up of FRS scientists and fishing representatives. These protocols share much in common with the sampling regimes described in FRS' standing instructions for demersal trawl surveys.
The cruise track and sampling locations will be delivered to the skipper prior to departure. Trawling in Irish waters will take place as necessary.
