PurposeFisheries
ObjectivesObjectives
1. To conduct an ichthyoplankton survey of the North West North Sea. This survey will form part of the ICES co-ordinated PGEGGS 2009 survey.
2. To biologically sample all cod (whiting and haddock from two areas) for length, sex and maturity. Otoliths, genetic samples and ovary sections will be extracted at sea and preserved in vials for later analysis.
3. To tag spawning cod from one area for investigations of their movements. Tagging will involve both conventional and data storage tags.
4. To screen cod for haemoglobin types from a coastal and offshore site.
5. To sample male cod for the CODEND project.
Narrative
Scotia departed from Aberdeen at 10:00h on 20 February heading east and after a trial deployment of the new Bongo gear began a grid of plankton stations, generally located in the centre of an ICES rectangle. A vertical CTD cast was undertaken at each plankton station and water samples were taken at the surface and bottom for salinity calibration.
