PurposeFisheries
ObjectivesDemersal fish survey
1. To obtain information on spatial patterns of abundance of different size- and age-classes of demersal fish in the northern Irish Sea.
2. To obtain indices of abundance for whiting, haddock, juvenile cod and palice for use at ICES Working Groups.
3. To compare trawl catches with estimates of abundance and target strength distribution of demersal fish obtained using the Simrad EK-500 echosounder in the vicinity of the trawls.
4. To examine geographic patterns of infection of whiting and cod by external parasites and codworm.
5. To collect fish stomachs for predation studies.
6. To collect data and ovary samples for the EC AIR project on estimating abundance of cod, plaice and sole using the annual egg production method.
7. To collect samples of dabs for contaminent montioring at DANI
8. To collect samples of cephalopods for a project at Aberdeen University.
