ObjectivesIBTS, International Bottom Trawl Survey, coordinated by the ICES International Bottom Trawl Survey Working Group (IBTSWG). IBTS targets the following commercial fish species: herring, cod, haddock, whiting, saithe, Norway pout, mackerel, sprat. The main objective of the IBTS is to provide recruitment indices of these commercial fish species. Plankton nets (MIK) are used to get an early indication of the potential amount of young herring, other fish larvae and pelagic eggs. Parallel to trawling, hydrographic data (salinity, temperature) are collected.
