AbstractIn spring 2009, five research vessels representing the Faroe Islands, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and Russia surveyed the spawning grounds of blue whiting west of the British Isles. International co-operation allows for wider and more synoptic coverage of the stock and more rational utilisation of resources than uncoordinated national surveys. The survey was the sixth coordinated international blue whiting spawning stock survey since 2004. The primary purpose of the survey was to obtain estimates of blue whiting stock abundance in the main spawning grounds using acoustic methods as well as to collect hydrographic information. Results of all the surveys are also presented in national reports (F. Nansen: Oganin et al. 2009; Celtic Explorer: O’Donnell et al. 2009; M. Heinason: Jacobsen et al. 2009; Tridens: Ybema et al. 2009; Holst et al. 2009). This report is based on a workshop held after the international survey in Galway, 22-24/4/2009 where the data were analysed and the report written.

A Draft Marine Research Plan for the European Atlantic Sea Basin: Discussion DocumentMarine Institute; Marine Board-ESF (Marine Institute & Marine Board-ESF, 2011)A key deliverable of Work Package 6.1 of the FP7 SEAS-ERA Project (May 2010 – April 2014) is to develop a draft Marine Research Plan as an input to the preparation of a Strategic Marine Research Agenda for the European Atlantic Sea Basin. This Discussion Document is designed to engage European Atlantic stakeholders in a wide ranging debate on the content and priorities to be addressed by such a draft Research Plan and will be used by the SEAS-ERA Atlantic partners to inform a series of Consultative Stakeholder Workshops scheduled to take place in 2012 (www.seas-era.eu/np4/events).
