|Cruise period||1985-11-22 — 1985-11-27|
|Port of departure||Lowestoft, United Kingdom|
|Port of return||Lowestoft, United Kingdom|
Preliminary studies of growth and mortality of young sole.
Team 1: 22nd-27th November, Lowestoft, FV Sundance.
Team 2: 17th-24th November, Rye Bay, FV St Richard.
1. 22 beam trawl hauls and 5 push net sites were sampled. All fish caught were identified and measured. Salinity and sediment samples were collected and surface temperature observations were made at each station. By-catch of shrimp was noted at each station.
2. Live 0-group sole collected for laboratory estimation of gastric evacuation time. Live 0-group held in tanks for 24 hours then deep frozen for laboratory estimation of condition factors. Additional hauls made in daylight and dark and samples of 0-group sole from these hauls collected for stomach content anaysis. Samples of by-catch species collected for stomach content analysis.
