1. To participate in the ICES co-ordinated International Beam Trawl Survey in the North Sea
2. Distribution of temperature and salinity in the area of investigation
The port of Cuxhaven was left on 17.8., steaming overnight with good weather conditions to the area scheduled for the Beam Trawl Survey west of Sylt, north of the Danish border (ca. 55°N). The following days the offshore stations were sampled from south to north, while the inshore stations were investigated from north to south. Due to a storm front the survey was aborted early in the afternoon on August 25. With the abandonment of two hauls the survey ended in the early hours of 26.8. in Cuxhaven.
