The expedition was included within SLUs International Bottom Trawl Survey and covered the Skagerrak and the Kattegat. Also during the expedition, SMHIs standard frequent stations were visited. In Skagerrak 5 stations with complete hydrography were sampled and in Kattegat 4 stations. Surface temperatures were typical for the season, while the surface salinity was clearly below normal. All nutrients showed normal values in both areas. Oxygen conditions in the bottom waters of Skagerrak were good, while in parts of the southern Kattegat some low values were measured.
