Objectives1. To participate in an ICES - coordinated acoustic and mid-water trawling survey in the north western North Sea and north of Scotland between 58º 30 to 62ºN and 4ºW to 2ºE excluding Norwegian and Faroes water.
2. To obtain samples of herring for biological analysis, including age, length, maturity and ichthyothonus 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.
