Regular trawl stations were laid out approximately every second CTD stations. Target trawls were undertaken whenever any target of interest were detected on the echosounder. Single opening-closing RMT 1+8 net (Baker et al., 1973) with CTD System installed was used for all of the tows (Regular and Target), Hard cod-ends were used ... View entire text
