International trawl, acoustic survey and assessment of pelagic fish stocks, integrated oceanographic survey. The research is carried out within the framework of long-term cooperation under the auspices of ICES. Hydroacoustic instruments are used to study fish distribution, check tows are performed by midwater trawl with 16 mm mesh size in the codend, oceanographic observations including measurements of water temperature and salinity will be made at standard hydrographic sections and trawl stations. Plankton samples are taken by the Juday net.
