PurposeResearch
ObjectivesObjectives

1. To assess the hydrographic influences on the aggregation of fish around surface laid oil and gas pipelines.
2. To assess the handling and performance of a benthic time lapse camera.

Procedure

MRV Scotia will depart Aberdeen Harbour at or before 07:00hrs on 18 May and conduct any required drills. Before making passage to the pipeline stations, Scotia will need to calibrate the EK60 and MBES in Scapa Flow. The nature of the survey work will be heavily dependent on the prevailing weather conditions encountered. The survey techniques are no different to previous surveys conducted by MSS using MRV Scotia albeit on a more localised scale. The proposed survey is based on two parts:

- The deployment and recovery of a time lapse camera for the duration of the survey; and
- The collection of hydrographic and fisheries acoustic data over 12 or 24 hour periods from several pipeline stations.
