Lineage The survey extends in the North Sea, which corresponds to ICES divisions IVb and IVc. The study area is divided into rectangles of 0.5d latitude and 1d longitude using a systematic sampling strategy. The sampling gear is a high opening bottom trawl well adapted for catching demersal species, with a 10 mm mesh size (side knot) for catching juveniles. This sampling gear is polyvalent and is well adapted to the varying seabed types encountered in the study area.Two 30 minutes hauls are performed
