PurposeFisheries
ObjectivesObjectives

1. To collect water column hydrographic data from approximately 25 sea lochs in the North Minch and Voes in Shetland to provide validation / forcing data for models of fish farming carrying capacity.

2. To continuously monitor chlorophyll a in surface waters during the cruise.

3. To undertake sediment sampling close to fish farms in Lochs Torridon and Sunart to investigate the effects of copper based anti-foulants.

4. To sample by CTD / Rosette close to the Loch Torridon CAPTOR buoy

5. To take Day grab samples of sediments from sites in the central Minch which have previously been subject to acoustic habitat mapping (MF0757)

Narrative

Scientific staff boarded the vessel at 1000 am on the 30 April and after loading scientific equipment and a short delay for tide at the Pentland Firth, Clupea departed at 1500 making for Loch Eriboll, arriving and anchoring in the loch during the night. Survey work commenced in Loch Eriboll on the 1 May, with 5 hydrographic stations (3 inside the loch, two outside) and a single zooplankton station sampled. Passage was then made to The Edrachillis Bay area of the West coast where a similar pattern of survey work (5 hydrographic stations and a single zooplankton station) was completed in Lochs Laxford and Cairnbhain before Clupea dropped anchor in Clashnessie Bay for the night.

After steaming to Loch Torridon on the morning of the 2 May, the Zodiak inflatable was launched in the upper loch for sampling to investigate the effects of copper antifoulants from nets at the fish farm at Camas an Leim. Shoreline macroalgae samples were taken far from and close to the farm and grab samples taken at different distances from the farm along transects North and South using a hand held VanVeen grab. Day grab samples were taken far from the farm in the upper loch for control purposes from Clupea and the vessel anchored overnight in the upper loch.
