ObjectivesWinter distribution of prawns in the German Bight. The trip was the professional continuation of the 615th Solea voyage and should also contribute to improving the knowledge of the distribution and frequency of prawns (Crangon crangon) during the winter. The standard program of the 615th trip was to be continued and concluded. In conjunction with this it is planned is to include the Danish sea area to the west of Jutland, in the framework of a cooperation with the Technical University of Denmark, since fishing and shrimp populations have strengthened there.
