ObjectivesObjectives

1. To participate in the ICES co-ordinated Western Division Demersal Trawling Survey.

2. To obtain temperature and salinity data at each trawling position.

3. To collect additional biological data in accordance with the EU Data Directive 1639/2001 and 1581/2004.

Narrative

Scotia sailed from Aberdeen at noon on 6 November and proceeded northwards toward the survey area. Whilst en-route, the opportunity was taken to deploy and check the operation of the trawl gear; in particular to measure the gear dimensions under strain. CTD was also deployed and both hardware and software checked.

Fishing commenced the next day at 0630hrs at the station in rectangle 47E6. The medium term weather forecast was very favourable for this time of year and we took advantage of this to progress westward and then southwards for the next twelve days. Scotia docked in Killybegs on Wednesday 18 November at 1400hrs for the scheduled half landing. Scotia sailed from Killybegs at 1500hrs on Thursday 19 November in poor weather and made passage for grounds located on the north coast of Ireland where surveying commenced the following morning. Other than a period of a few hours when Scotia had to dodge severe weather in the North Minch, fishing continued unobstructed up to the 26 November, when Scotia made way for Aberdeen. Scotia docked alongside Aberdeen at 2315hrs.
