CE15004 Celtic Sea Herring Acoustic survey 2nd October - 22nd October

Mr Ciaran O’Donnell of the Marine Institute will lead an experienced team of biologists from the Marine Institute along a series of  acoustic transects deploying a pelagic trawl to ground truth acoustic traces of herring and other pelagic species.  Other sampling opportunities will exist through the vessel’s underway system and regular CTD deployments. This survey forms part of a time series used to provide biomass estimates and tune stock assements of herring in the Celtic Sea.

Successful candidates will be advised of ports of embarkation and disembarkation closer to the dates of the survey with either Galway or Cork being utilised.

This 21 day multidisciplinary survey will appeal to a postgraduate or advanced undergraduate student with a confirmed interest in one or more of the following themes: fisheries science, acoustics, and marine mega fauna.  Proposals for data collection that can be accommodated within survey operations are welcome. The 2014 survey report can be downloaded at: http://oar.marine.ie/bitstream/10793/1049/3/CSHAS%20Cruise%20Report%202014.pdf
