PurposeResearch
Objectives1. Demersal trawling survey of the grounds off the north and west coasts of Scotland and Irish Sea.
2. To obtain termperature and salinity data from surface and sea bed at each trawling position.
3. To obtain samples for the cod biological sampling programme.
All routine survey stations were succesfully covered with 4 additional hauls being done, west of St. Kilda, to provide information on species composition at different depths. A further 43 hauls were carried out to obtain samples for the cod biological sampling programme.

Description: CTD deployed prior to the start of each trawling station.
Biology and fisheries 
ZoobenthosQuantity: number of hauls = 61
Description: One haul of 30 minutes' duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.
Pelagic fishQuantity: number of hauls = 61
Description: One haul of 30 minutes' duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.
CrustaceansQuantity: number of hauls = 61
Description: One haul of 30 minutes' duration carried out at each station to obtain information on species composition, length frequency and age data where appropriate. Net used was a GOV (BT137) with a small mesh cod-end.
Other biological/fisheries measurementQuantity: number of samples = 43
Description: Additional bottom trawls carried out to obtain samples for the cod biological sampling programme (METACOD). Samples of cod collected for length, weight, sex, maturity stage, fecundity and DNA analysis.
