MRV Scotia 1615S Blog PictureWe sailed from Aberdeen on 4th November to undertake comparison trials of a new ground gear (ground gear E), with a standard ground gear (ground gear B). The survey began with instrumentation trials, before moving to commercial fishing grounds to undertake catchability trials.

Once the required number of hauls were completed for ground gear E, and data collected, the net was re-rigged with ground gear B and the catchability trials recommenced. Catchability trials are ongoing; as are the underwater TV observations and instrumentation trials.
