Abstract: Coordination of the survey was initiated in the meeting of the Working Group on International Pelagic Surveys (WGIPS) and continued by correspondence until the start of the survey. During the survey, updates on vessel positions and trawl activities were collated by the survey coordinator and distributed to the participants twice daily. The survey design used and described in ICES (2014) allowed for a flexible setup of transects and good coverage of the spawning aggregations. Considering weather conditions were by no means optimal during the survey period, good quality coverage of the stock was achieved. Transects of all vessels were consistent in spatial coverage and timing, delivering full coverage of the respective distribution areas within 14 days.
