1. To undertake a nationally co-ordinated demersal trawling survey of anglerfish in the North West of Scotland and the West of Shetland sea areas.

2. To obtain temperature at depth profiles at each trawling station.


This is the 4th annual Anglerfish survey, which follows a set of protocols drawn up by an industry science survey planning group made up of FRS scientists and fishing representatives. These protocols share much in common with the sampling regimes described in FRS' standing instructions for demersal trawl surveys.

The cruise track and sampling locations will be delivered to the skipper prior to departure.
