The Loughs Agency advises that it will carry out the SeaMonitor-EU Interreg Project (Survey CV21003) from Saturday 27 February to Friday 5 March.

The survey is being carried out in the North Channel in support of EU InterregVA project SeaMonitor.

A total of 108 Acoustic Listening Stations (ALS) are planned to be deployed at different locations covering a total of 63km between Malin Head in Co Donegal and Portnahaven on the Isle of Islay in western Scotland.

The first ALS on the Irish side is located 0.5 nautical miles from Inishtralhull Island at a depth of 20m. On the Scottish side, the first ALS is located 0.5nm from the shore at depths of 20-30m.

The survey will be conducted by the RV Celtic Voyager (Callsign EIQN) which will display appropriate lights and signals. Operations will be carried out during daylight hours to facilitate a safe deployment of acoustic receivers on the sea bed.

Further details including relevant coordinates can be found in Marine Notice No 07 of 2021, a PDF of which can be downloaded below.

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
