Trawl Survey Design and Evaluation

Design and implementation of trawl surveys, with an emphasis on visualization of data, as well as survey design, operation and analysis.

4-8 November 2013
ICES, Copenhagen, Denmark
Registration is closed.


The objective of the course is to provide a thorough grounding in the design and implementation of trawl surveys which will be useful for both beginners and experts. Students will be guided through the entire process of going to sea, collecting and storing the data, preparing them for stock assessments, and submission to ICES. Emphasis will be placed on how the data can be visualized and how problems of misinterpretation due to confounding can be avoided.


This is an introductory course to scientific trawl surveys; their design, conduct and evaluation. It will be targeted at individuals who are starting out in trawl surveys. Nevertheless it would also benefit those who are already involved but wish to learn more and improve their understanding.
