1) Chemical analysis of caught fish.
2) Radio caesium sampling.
3) Sampling of North Sea benthos stations
All stations around the oilfields were sampled for microbenthic and epibenthic fauna, particle size analysis, diesel analysis, carbon/chlorophyll analysis, and fish for taste panel assessment and observations on disease and ulceration. 26 general North Sea stations (including the JONIS line) were occupied and satisfactorily sampled.
