Biology and fisheries 
Primary productivityQuantity: number of hauls = 39
Description: Two metre beam trawl towed for 15 mins along track of trawl stations. All phytobenthos, zoobenthos, molluscs, crustaceans and fish recorded.
PhytobenthosQuantity: number of hauls = 39
Description: Two metre beam trawl towed for 15 mins along track of trawl stations. All phytobenthos, zoobenthos, molluscs, crustaceans and fish recorded.
ZoobenthosQuantity: number of hauls = 39
Description: Two metre beam trawl towed for 15 mins along track of trawl stations. All phytobenthos, zoobenthos, molluscs, crustaceans and fish recorded.
Pelagic fishQuantity: number of hauls = 87
Description: One haul of 30 minutes' duration in each statistical rectangle of allocated area. Demersal (GOV) trawl deployed with scanmar sensors to measure net width, height, etc. Length measurements recordered for all species encountered. Otoliths taken from cod, haddock, whitting, saithe, norway pout, sprat, herring and mackeral to provide estimates of numbers caught at each age group.
