Danish Data Collection Framework (DCF) Programme – Sampling and processing from scientific surveys

Project Details

Description

The aim of the project is sampling and processing data collected from Scientific surveys, according to the EU data collection programme, to support for the scientific advice and management of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP, 199/2008), with details outlined in the commission delegation decision (EU) 2021/ 1168, with focus on the scientific surveys.

The project covers data sampling from commercial and scientific surveys as well as the following sampling and data processing in land.

The main tasks in the program are to:
- Carry out scientific surveys to achieve fishery independent time series for stock assessment.
- Analyze data in the laboratories, for biological measures such as age, stock identity, weight and maturity.

- Baltic International Trawl Survey (BITS_Q1) with RV Havfisken
- Baltic International Trawl Survey (BITS_Q1) with RV Dana
