PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. Conduct an acoustic survey to estimate the abundance and distribution of herring in the north western North Sea and north of Scotland between 58°30'-62°N and from the shelf edge to 2°E, excluding Faroese waters. Acoustic transects will be carried out in Moray Firth to estimate abundance of herring and sprat.
2. Obtain biological samples for echosounder trace identification using a pelagic trawl.
3. Obtain samples of herring and sprat for biological analysis, including age, length, weight, sex, maturity, ichthyophonus infection and stock identity for herring caught west of 4W.
4. Test feasibility of using GoPro cameras mounted in the net and on a dropframe to further aid in species identification in the echogram scrutiny process.
5. Obtain hydrographic data for comparison with the horizontal and vertical distribution of herring and sprat.
