Cruise Info. 
Ship name (ship code)FRV Clupea (74CU)
Cruise identifier1502C_2
Cruise period2002-09-25 — 2002-10-04
StatusCompleted
Port of departureMontrose, United Kingdom
Port of returnFraserburgh, United Kingdom
PurposeResearch
Objectives1) To conduct a hydrographic and plankton survey along a transect off Stonehaven.
2) To determine spatial variation in the water temperature, salinity, fluorometric and turbidity profiles within the main Wee Bankie/Marr Bank study area by CTD-fluorometer transmissometer dips.
3) To carry out a night-time grab survey to assess sandeel abundance and distribution in sediments previously determined as suitable sandeel habitat. The sediment samples collected during this survey will be used to assess the RoxAnn derived sandeel habitat map.
4) To obtain samples of sandeels for population age structure analysis at pre-determined stations on the Wee Bankie, Marr Bank and Berwick's Bank using a sandeel dredge.
