Objectives1. To participate in an ICES-coordinated acoustic and mid-water trawling survey in the north western North Sea and north of Scotland, excluding Faeroes waters - Including intercalibration with GO Sars.
2. To obtain samples of herring for biological analysis, including age, length, maturity and ichthyophonus infection rates.
3. To obtain thermosalinograph recordings throughout the survey, CTD profiles (and XBT profiles) and sea surface T & S for analysis of herring distribution, seabird distribution and the environment.
4. To obtain Methot net samples of plankton and micro nekton at night.
5. To obtain estimates of seabird density.
