ObjectivesThis survey aims at estimating the recruitment of a number of commercial fish species, such as plaice, sole, cod, haddock and whiting. Also benthos will be collected to study biodiversity. During the survey also hydrographical data are collected. In each ICES rectangle visited one haul (30 minutes) will be made with or an 8 m beam trawl and a 2 m beam trawl. After each haul a profile will be made with a CTD-Sonde. In addition herring larvae will be sampled with a plankton-net (MIK).
