This long-term research project at the Dogger Bank has been running since the year 1990 on a yearly basis and this cruise is number 25. Sampling will be done by collecting bottom animals by beam trawl dredging and the use of Van-Veen grab and ring dredge. Plankton collection will occur at selected stations. The environmental variables water temperature, salinity are recorded for comparative purposes.
