Objective The CGFS cruise objectives were to collect basic data to support estimations of recruitment and health status of the main stocks fished in the Eastern English Channel. In the framework of the ecosystem-based approach, the CGFS cruise contributed to improving knowledge about the spatial distribution and assemblages as well as to characterizing the habitats preferred by the main species in the Eastern Channel. This falls under the 'Fisheries ecosystem-base approach' project.
