Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
20/01206 — Contract for the Annual Hire of 2 Ring Nets/Trawl Vessel for Mackerel-eco System Missions in the Norwegian Sea in the Period 2021-2024
The Institute of Marine Research (the Contracting Authority) would like to hire two combined ring nets/trawl vessels for comprehensive annual estimations of the number of mackerel, blue whiting and Norwegian spring spawning herring in the Norwegian Sea and adjoining seas and coastal areas within the period 2021-2024.
Tenderers must have a quota for mackerel, Norwegian spring spawning herring and blue whiting. The required quota per hired vessel for each mission with comprehensive pelagic trawling with Multpelt 832 will be 150 tonnes mackerel, 50 tonnes Norwegian spring spawning herring, and 10 tonnes blue whiting.
The Norwegian Sea and along the Norwegian coast.
The mackerel stock will be estimated with systematic pelagic trawling (swept area) in the upper water layer (depth of 0-35 m), by using the international standardised Multpelt 832 trawl. The procurement also includes acoustic measurements of the number of Norwegian spring spawning herring and blue whiting by trawling acoustic registrations at various depths. In addition, there will also be scientific focus on other fish species such as horse mackerel, salmon, lumpfish, and bluefin tuna within the mapped sea and coastal areas. The procurement is also for systematic mapping of the temperature and salt content (depths of 0-1 000 m), plankton sample taking (depths of 0-200 m), and sea mammal observations for ecological and eco-system based studies.
The international mackerel eco-system mission (IESSNS) will take place in the north eastern Atlantic Sea, and the two hired vessels will primarily operate within the Norwegian Sea and along the Norwegian coast.
