Objectives1. To assess pre-recruit scallop abundance inshore between Dodman Point and the Lizard (for comparison with offshore data collected by RV CORYSTES in July).
2. To use an underwater still camera to investigate a patch of juvenile scallops located in 1991. Due to delay of this survey, the camera was not available for this cruise.
3. To obtain 1991/92 catch/effort data from FV ROCKHOPPER logbook. Insufficient time to complete this aim.
