ObjectivesThe main objective of the IESSNS (International Ecosystem Summer Survey in the Nordic Seas) is to estimate mackerel abundance per age class, but also CTD and plankton samples are being collected. The survey is carried out during July and a special designed gear, the Multipelt 832 pelagic trawl with Dynema warps, is used to catch the mackerel. The trawl fishery takes place at a combination of fixed and non-fixed stations located along transects, and fishing depth is form surface to about 30 - 35 m depth.
