Irish Sea and Cardigan Bay. Grids of plankton stations up to 10 nautical miles apart.
Zooplankton and zoobenthos morphological parameters; Electrical conductivity of the water column; Salinity of the water column; Temperature of the water column; Zooplankton taxonomy-related abundance per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton taxonomy-related biomass expressed as carbon per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton and zoobenthos development stage parameters; Zooplankton egg hatch proportion

A series of 11 plankton surveys aimed at providing an independent assessment of the size of the spawning stocks of cod, plaice and sole in the Irish Sea. 3 other labs participated : dept of the marine, Dublin; DANI, Belfast; Port Erin Marine Lab, Isle of Man. 4 grids were sampled by CEFAS - 5 sets of samples were analysed. Each grid consisted of 90-106 samples; fish eggs, fish larvae and Nephrops larvae were sorted and identified. Cod plaice sole eggs were staged, as were nephrops larvae.
