Mackerel and Horse Mackerel Egg Survey

Marine Scotland Blog - Tue, 2019-07-02 10:00

MFV Altaire
Survey 0319H Programme

 

Duration: 1-23 July 2019

 

Fishing/Sampling Gear: Gulf VII plankton sampler, vessels own pelagic trawl.

 

Objectives:

  1. To carry out mackerel and horse mackerel egg survey (ICES Triennial Survey) within sampling Period 7 of the 2016 MEGS survey plan along the NE Atlantic shelf and slope in the area from approximately 47o N to 58o30N (see Figure 1).

 

  1. To collect adult fish samples, by trawling, for atresia and fecundity analysis back at the laboratory.

 

Procedures:

The vessel will be loaded from Ullapool late on the morning of 1 July and during the afternoon will proceed down through the Minch towards the first plankton stations west of Barra Head at 56o45N in time for early morning on 2 July.  Ideally, plankton stations will be taken west along the line until zero eggs are found and from there the vessel will continue surveying to the south.  This Period 7 survey represents the final survey in the 2019 schedule and will attempt to cover the whole of the spawning area for both mackerel and horse mackerel.  This is an extremely challenging task and as such the main priority will be to ensure that the remaining concentrations of spawning are sampled adequately.  Its extent will, therefore, be largely determined by the observed findings of the three vessels surveying in Period 6.  Figure 1 represents the area surveyed during this temporal period in 2016 and is likely to reflect pretty closely the area that will be covered during the forthcoming survey although just to reiterate the actual extent (longitudinal as well as latitudinal) will be dictated by the results received from the previous survey period that is currently being undertaken. Once these have been received a definite survey plan will be drafted that will aim to capture the bulk of any remaining spawning activity and within the time allocated to MSS for this survey.  Due to the size of the area latitudinal transect spacing will almost certainly be at 1o intervals with stations being sampled at 30′ intervals on the E/W transects normally at the 15’ and 45’.  Plankton stations will be taken using the Gulf VII sampler with mounted CTD which will record salinity and temperature during the tow.  The plankton stations will require the vessel to deploy the sampler at and maintain a speed of four knots.  The sampler will then be lowered at a steady rate (6m/min) from the plankton crane to within 5 m of the seabed or 200 m – whichever is shallower.  The sampler will then be recovered at the same speed.  Once aboard, plankton samples will be washed from the sampler net, fixed in formalin and scored for egg abundance.  Trawl samples will be taken at the discretion of the scientist in charge.  There should be a maximum of ten trawls for the whole survey, and will usually be taken on the continental shelf or near the shelf edge.

 

After completing the southernmost transects of the survey area Altaire will put in for a mid-survey break most likely in either Cork or Falmouth around 13/14 July.  Altaire will then proceed north and west to complete the remaining survey transects before returning to Ullapool for unloading on the morning of 23 July 2019.  All of the sampling gear as well as the samplers, sampling container and wire for deploying the sampler will also be unloaded and returned back to Aberdeen.

Nephrops Burrowing Complexes; Part Two

Marine Scotland Blog - Fri, 2019-06-28 14:33

The Nephrops TV survey continued through the South Minch without any issues and experienced some impressive sunsets. Due to a poor weather forecast, the vessel made way for Stanton Bank a little earlier than originally planned and recovered/deployed a COMPASS mooring in the south of the region (which had an even larger squid cluster than the earlier mooring!), before heading north and completing a number of TV stations and a trawl, the first at Stanton since 2007.

A long steam east to Ardnamurchan then followed, accompanied by a number of minke whales, then on to Garvellachs to recover another COMPASS mooring.

All went well and this work was followed by a journey through the Sound of Islay and into the Sound of Jura where all the TV stations and a trawl were completed without any problems. As with earlier trawls, DNA samples were taken from the skate caught in the trawl along with photographs of their intricate eyes (see main picture). As well as all the biological measurements taken from the Nephrops, they were also lined up on the fish house conveyor belt and filmed as they passed under the Remote Electronic Monitoring (REM) cameras, providing data to calibrate the carapace lengths derived by algorithms on the REM system and the measurements taken by the scientists on board (see attached photograph).

The vessel then headed around to the southerly stations in the Clyde.

Normally this area is only surveyed at the weekend when the trawlers remain in port and creel vessels are active, resulting in less disturbance of the seabed and better visibility to carry out the survey. But due to the weather and the timing of the half landing, the TV work had to be carried out on a Thursday. Despite this, the water clarity was surprisingly good in the south and up through the Kilbranan Sound, although it did deteriorate on the east side of Arran – so a trawl was carried out before heading for a very wet half landing in Belfast.

Once the vessel returned to sea, the remaining stations in the Clyde were completed before trawling off Ailsa Craig and then heading to the TV stations around the small isles, south of Skye, where the vessel remained for a further day before heading back to the North Minch to complete the stations around Raasay and off the mainland and recovering the last COMPASS mooring of Stoer Head.

BOWLing for Prey Species

Marine Scotland Blog - Thu, 2019-06-20 08:30
MRV Alba na Mara

Survey: 0919A Programme

Duration: 8-12 June 2019

Equipment:
  • Pelagic net PT 154;
  • “Bongo” net plankton sampling equipment;
  • Seabird SBE19 CTD;
  • Water sampling mini-rosette;
  • Sandeel dredge;
  • Day grab and grab table; and
  • EK 60 sounder.
Location Names:
  • Beatrice Offshore Wind farm Limited  (BOWL);
  • Moray East Offshore Wind farm (MEOW); and
  • Moray West Offshore Wind farm (MWOW).
Objectives: Primary Objectives:
  1. Study the distribution of prey species (fish schools, zooplankton patches) across the Smith Bank in relation to data available from BOWL post-construction digital aerial surveys and University of Aberdeen Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) surveys of top predators.
  2. Compare the distribution of schooling sandeels in summer with data on their presence in the sediment from the BOWL/MEOW winter sandeel monitoring
Secondary Objectives:
  1. Collect hydrographic data to further validate the Scottish Shelf Model (SSM) and incorporate its outputs into assessment of drivers of predator distribution.
Primary Objective:

Alba na Mara will conduct acoustic surveys using the EK60 sounder along key transects that are concurrently being surveyed using HiDef digital aerial surveys and PAM deployments.  The time period of this survey covers a similar period as the BOWL post-construction digital aerial surveys (May to July 2019), when sandeels are in the water column during daylight to feed.  Acoustic surveys will be made within five pre-selected aerial survey transects (see Figure 2) passing between wind farm turbine rows.

Acoustic data will be collected for all available frequencies.  Concurrent visual surveys collect data at different levels of the trophic web using a multi-disciplinary approach.

Line-transect surveys will be conducted at an average speed of 8 knots. Two replicates of the line transects will be carried out within each 500m wide aerial survey transect (Figure 2).

Pelagic sampling for sandeels using the PT 154 net will be conducted early on in the day to capture the change of light.  A sandeel dredge will be deployed as a back-up should the pelagic net not catch any samples. Due to the light periods relevant to sandeel capture this survey will operate a working timetable of 06:00 to 18:00.

Shooting positions will be chosen along the survey transects but not necessarily in the same orientation as these.  The shooting and hauling position of the trawls will be recorded. The trawl duration will be of 30 minutes.

Plankton sampling will be done using the “bongo” net dual sampler using nets of 200 and 68µm mesh size. Collected samples will be preserved in a number of ways: 70% alcohol, 4% formaldehyde and vital stain neutral red. Positions for these have been planned as stratified random positions along the transect lines, Figure 3 shows these positions.

Survey Activities During Turbine Piling Activities

The Alba na Mara will survey around any turbine piling activities should these start at the MEOW site. Alba na Mara will collect biological samples at a predetermined safety distance from the piling activities. Daily contact with the MEOW operation team will ensure that the Alba can sample soon after piling events are completed.

Secondary Objective:

1)    A grid of hydrographic sampling stations will be sampled during the survey to collect data for the SSM. At each station a CTD together with a water sampler will be deployed. The plankton sampling net will also be deployed at these locations. See Figure 3.

CTD profiles will be collected throughout each transect at stratified random positions to provide information on the local sound speed varying with depths, temperature and salinity. Water sampling will be performed at the same time using the mini-rosette in conjunction with the CTD.

Should the CTD not work in conjunction with the mini-rosette reversible bottles will be used for collecting water samples.

All Eyes on New Worm Species

Marine Scotland Blog - Tue, 2019-06-18 10:00

There’s a worm at the bottom of the sea – and it’s been discovered off the Scottish coast by a team of scientists from the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC), Marine Scotland Science (MSS) and Thomson Environmental Consultants.  But this isn’t an ordinary worm – the newcomer has a unique anatomy with its eyes in its head and in its bottom.

This new species, now given the scientific name Ampharete oculicirrata, was collected by scientists from JNCC and MSS whilst surveying the West Shetland Shelf Marine Protected Area (MPA). The West Shetland Shelf MPA has been designated to protect a wide variety of important sand and gravel habitats and is equivalent in size to the Cairngorm National Park. The survey was the first to explore the animals within and on the seabed in this area and marks the beginning of a programme of long-term monitoring. As part of this undertaking, sandy areas of previously unexplored seabed were targeted for detailed examination by the scientists on board the research vessel MRV Scotia.  During the identification process back onshore it became apparent that a completely unknown species of worm was present.

New Worm Species©National Museums Scotland_B

©National Museums Scotland

The worm was identified by a team led by Ruth Barnich of Thomson Environmental Consultants, Julio Parapar from the University of La Coruña and Juan Moreira from the Autonomous University of Madrid. Now it’s been officially identified, our wiggly friend has found a new home in the collections of National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh.

Tim McDonnell, Head of Marine Scotland Science commented:

“I am delighted that partnership working between MSS, JNCC and Thomson Environmental using Scotland’s principal scientific research vessel has led to this exciting discovery. Our sampling and analysis work takes a great amount of time and expertise but undoubtedly adds to our knowledge and understanding of the Scottish marine environment.”

Jessica Taylor, Marine Evidence Advisor from JNCC, said:

“This new species is an exciting and interesting addition to the work we do in Marine Protected Areas. The fact that it was found in relatively shallow depths, relatively close to the Scottish coastline, shows just how much more there is to understand about the creatures that live in our waters.

I’m excited about future JNCC and MSS surveys and what they may reveal.  And it’s great that specimens of the new species have been acquired by National Museums Scotland and are available for future studies.”

Ruth Barnich,  Principal Scientist in the marine team at Thomson, said:

“It’s always fascinating to work on offshore samples. In those collected by JNCC and MSS at 100 – 600 metres depth, we saw many rare and unusual species which are typical of deeper waters, such as brittle stars and various polychaetes and shrimps.”

A scientific paper detailing the find in full has just been published in the June edition of the European Journal of Taxonomy.

Further Information:

  • More images of the worm can be found here.
  • Further details of the offshore seabed survey of West Shetland Shelf MPA where the species was found.
  • Marine Scotland Science (MSS) topic sheet
  • 57 samples were collected by 0.1 m2 Hamon grab on the survey. Sediment subsamples were analysed from all of the samples collected and 43 of the samples were analysed to determine what animals were present.
  • JNCC, MSS and National Museums Scotland plan to revisit West Shetland Shelf MPA in August 2019 to conduct further sampling to form a monitoring timeseries which will be used to inform assessment of the condition of the protected features of the site for comparison against future data to monitor the rate and direction of any changes.
