ObjectivesObjectives

1. To undertake an internationally co-ordinated demersal trawling survey of the North Sea.

2. Obtain temperature and salinity profiles at each trawling station.

3. Obtain low nutrient water seawater samples from statistical rectangle 45F1 (or an adjacent rectangle).

Narrative

Due to the vessel having to undergo repair between voyages, sailing was delayed until 5 August. The vessel sailed from Aberdeen at 1500 and completed one haul at the trawling station off Aberdeen. A further 4 stations were successfully completed off the east coast of Scotland the following day and with the extended weather forecast indicating favourable weather, the decision was taken to work on the northern part of the survey area first. The vessel then proceeded in a northerly direction, covering stations off the northeast coast, Moray Firth, Orkney and southeast Shetland regions. With continuing good weather, the stations west of the Shetland Isles were completed on 12 August. Scotia then worked easterly, entering Norwegian waters on the evening of 13 August. A further 3 stations were completed in this area before docking in Stavanger for the mid cruise break on the morning of 15 August. Scotia departed from Stavanger at 0900 on 16 August and completed 2 stations in the Norwegian Sector before returning to complete a series of stations around the Fladen area. Scotia then completed the southern stations within the Norwegian Sector on 20 August, with the stations in the Danish sector being completed on the morning of 22 August. The southern stations in the Dutch and German territorial waters were completed on the evening of 24 August and Scotia then returned to UK waters to complete the allocated stations in the southern part of the survey area. With this work completed on the evening of 27 August, 3 additional stations off the east coast of Scotland were completed in support of the international coverage.

Scotia then returned to Aberdeen at 2330 on 28 August, with unloading taking place during 29 August.
