Objective The CGFS cruise aimed to collect basic data to estimate the status of fisheries resources, by direct assessment of stock abundance and distribution, along with biological sampling of catches to characterize the preferred habitats of the main species in the Eastern Channel. The related projects are SIDEPECHE and DEMOSTEM.
