ObjectivesThe purpose of the sand eel dredge survey is to collect sand eels buried in the seabed using a modified mussel dredge and compare catches (number and age composition) with the previous year's collections to assess the 2016 year class strength of sand eel in the different areas adopted by ICES in 2009. Data from the dredge survey is the basis for calculating an index, which will be used in the stock assessment.
