Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)RV Corystes (74RY)
Cruise identifierCOR2/92
Cruise period1992-01-28 — 1992-02-06
Port of departureLowestoft, United Kingdom
Port of returnLowestoft, United Kingdom
Objectives1. 200 tagged plaice to be released at 5 stations over a 24-hour period. Aim abandoned due to the lack of suitable fish for tagging.
2. Trials of new pressure telemetry tag, switched mode prototype tag, etc.
3. Re-evaluate the Scanner during a short tag training exercise (about 24 hours). If the trials are successful and without compromising the programme, a 3-man BBC team will be available at short notice to film a portion of the tracking exercise.
4. Assess an ADCP system, and to determine if it can be used in conjunction with the Scanner (conflicting operating frequencies).
5. Deploy a Granton trawl and investigate the effects of the door backstrop attachment point on the wing-end distance and headline height, and the performance of the Scanmar net telemetry system.
6. Evaluate the EG&G software, and the Continuous Logging software.
7. Compare the sensor data from Chelsea and Guildine flow cells.
8. Evaluate the RoxAnn sea-bed discrimination system (if delivered in time for the cruise). Aims 4 and 8 could not be completed due to the ADCP and RoxAnn seabed evaluation systems not arriving on time.
