ObjectivesMulti disciplinary project on sea bass looking at the distributions of adult fish, eggs and larvae. Trawling offshore we will look at the distribution of large adult sea bass, which will be tagged with satellite tags. Any untagged specimens will be sampled for biological data (length, weight, sex, maturity and genetics). Determination of the location and extent of spawning grounds using plankton nets for identifying sea bass eggs and larvae will be carried in locations closer to the UK coast.
