Call Closed: CE15005 Blue Whiting Acoustic Survey: 22nd March - 11th April

The blue whiting acoustic survey is an annual survey that forms part of the assessment of the spawning stock biomass of blue whiting in the North East Atlantic Ocean. International partners on this survey include the Faroe Islands, Norway, the Netherlands and Russia.  Celtic Explorer transects will be lead by Ciaran O’Donnell of the Marine Institute and take place in deep waters to the west and north of Ireland.  Challenging sea conditions are expected so applicants should be able to demonstrate significant seagoing experience.  

This is a tremendous opportunity for post graduate students wishing to gain experience in marine data collection. Applications are invited from graduate and postgraduates wishing to develop a career in fisheries science and megafauna observation. There may also be opportunities for the collection of hydrographic samples and data within the survey schedule.

The 2014 survey report may be downloaded here.

The closing date for applications to join this survey is the 25th February.

Embarkation and disembarkation will be from Galway.
