Rockall Trough, Porcupine Seabight

Pelagic trawl nets
The Rockall survey covers fish living at depths between 500m and 3000m. The fish are benthopelagic (i.e. living on or close to the bottom). All data is stored on Oracle. The Porcupine Sea Bight survey was carried out jointly with IOS Deacon Laboratory (now the Southampton Oceangrpahy centre (SOC)). All data from the Granton trawls and other upper slope data is held at SAMS on Oracle. The deeper trawl data are held by N.R. Merrett at the Natural History Museum, London (formerly at IOSDL).
