ICES coordinated Beam Trawl Survey. Aims to estimate the recruitment of a number of commercial fish species, such as plaice, sole, dab, cod, whiting turbot and brill. Hydrographical data are also collected during the survey.
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.
