ObjectivesNorth Sea Ecosystem cruise. The aim of the cruise is to sample two standard transects for physical oceanographic parameters (CTD casts, nutrients and chlorphyll), phyto- and zooplankton, and fish larvae for the IMR projects 'Monitoring of climate and plankton in the North Sea Skagerrak', and 'Early life history dynamics of North Sea Fishes'.

Data and samples will be collected on pre-selected stations along the two standard transects 'Utsira-StartPoint' between Norway and the Orkney Islands and 'Hanstholm-Aberdeen' between Denmark and the UK.
