The expedition was included within SLU:s International Bottom Trawl Survey and covered the Skagerrak and the Kattegat.
Mapping of winter nutrient conditions was performed in the Skagerrak and 14 stations with complete hydrography were sampled. In the Kattegat area 12 stations were sampled with ctd and bottle sample.
Nutrient concentrations at Anholt E showed values slightly below normal for the season. The spring bloom had not started in the investigated area.
Oxygen conditions in the bottom waters of the investigated areas were good and many stations showed values over 90% saturation throughout the water column.
