Narrative

Due to the tidal situation at Aberdeen, sailing was at1200 hrs on 9 August. The vessel completed two hauls, one at the station at Girdleness and a second at the station off Montrose. A further 5 stations were successfully completed off the east coast of Scotland the following day and with the revised survey area in mind, the decision was taken to work on the south western survey area first. Work continued over the next 3 days in this area with the vessel averaging
5 hauls per day before tracking back North West to cover the remaining stations around the mainland coastline and islands. This allowed for sampling of spawning Herring to take place in areas 4A and 4B before the scheduled half landing. Progress was slowed on 19 and 20 August by fresh SSE winds but did not hinder the vessel landing in Stavanger on 21 August for the scheduled stop for rest and staff changes.

The vessel departed Stavanger at 0800hrs on 22 August and completed 2 trawling stations late on that day. The following day it became apparent that the CTD sampling equipment had developed a fault and an alternative method of sampling for hydrographic data was adopted for the remainder of the trip to meet IBTS requirements. The vessel then proceeded in a general southerly direction to complete the remaining stations in the Norwegian and Danish sectors before returning to the UK sector. Scotia then made a detour to put a crew member ashore for compassionate reasons at Peterhead on the morning of 27 August. Over the next 2 days the vessel suffered gear damage in stats rectangles 48F0, 49E6 and 48E6, the vessel made passage for the remaining 2 stations due to time constraints. Scotia completed the survey area at 1300 hrs on 30 August and made passage for Aberdeen

Scotia docked Aberdeen at 0900hrs on 31 August, where unloading took place.
