Boarfish surveys have been carried out on commercial fishing vessels as part of an industry/science partnership. Boarfish surveys have taken place in the Celtic Seas around Ireland including the North Atlantic Ocean. They have taken place each July and have been collected since 2011. Outside of the spawning season many pelagic species were generally very scattered over a large geographical area and difficult to detect using acoustic methods. A cruise track was first formulated with data from previous surveys, commercial catch data and the help of the fishermen and fishing industry. Acoustic surveys for boarfish have been generally carried out on spawning and pre-spawning aggregations of boarfish to ascertain the abundance and distribution of the target species. Boarfish are the newest species surveyed by Fisheries Ecosystem Advisory Services of the Marine Institute (Ireland). Data is 100% complete for the survey years since 2011.
