Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


After technical problems prevented the North Sea mackerel egg survey to be carried out in 2014, a successful survey was carried out in May-June 2015. The survey was carried out on board ‘RV Tridens’. The expected mackerel spawning area was covered in each of four periods in east-west transects, separated by 1 degree. In total 260 valid plankton hauls with a Gulf VII plankton sampler were performed, as well as 3 fish hauls and 4 sets of flowmeter calibrations hauls.
