Description 
Summary

CTD data register of fisheries cruises. Since 1988, summer expeditions have been carried out for the evaluation of the stock at Flemish Cap. The method used for the sampling of bottom trawls and for the process of information was randomly distributed. Although different vessels have been used, results are comparable, due to the fact that the same gear and doors have been used on every vessel. Species include: cod, flounder, 3 species of red fishes, Greenland halibut and rays.
