The prawn (Nephrops norvegicus) are common around the Irish coast occurring in geographically distinct sandy/muddy areas were the sediment is suitable for them to construct their burrows. Nephrops spend a great deal of time in their burrows and their emergence from these is related to time of year, light intensity and tidal strength. Area of interest: - Aran Grounds - Irish Sea - Celtic Sea

Beam trawl tows were conducted randomly once the UWTV stations have been successfully completed. Beam trawls are used to catch Nephrops for analysis.
