Objectives1st Quarter Ground fish Survey. The EU Data Collection Regulation (EC 1639/2001) establishes minimum sampling requirements for biological data, such as growth, maturity, fecundity and sex ration that need to be gathered by each member state. The survey will gather these data for mainly demersal species in the waters around Ireland (Irish Sea, Celtic Sea and the Continental shelf areas to the north, west and south of Ireland) using bottom trawls.
