The scientific staff joined FRV Clupea at 0930 hours on 23 May and sailed from Fraserburgh at just before midday. Sampling began to the Northeast of Fraserburgh shortly afterwards and Clupea continued to cover the North East management area grounds over the following 6 days. Bad weather prevented work on 30 May and it was decided to bring the half landing forward to the 31 May, thus several Moray Firth stations were missed.
