Description 
Summary

The programme involves sampling of commercial fish with a beam trawler 'De Broodwinnner' in spring and autumn. From each species about 5000 samples were examined for external and internal diseases. All data are presented to ICES-WEPDMO sub-group on analysis of diseases prevalence in marine fish stocks. The determination of fish diseases in relation to pollution in the Southern North Sea is carried out with the research vessel 'Belgica'. This programme was started in 1989.
