    Program period: 2013 – 2015

    Number of vessels in the program: 14

    Geographic scope of the program: North Sea, Skagerrak and Baltic Sea

    A brief description of the equipment employed in the EM / ER:

    All vessels were equipped with REM from Anchor lab K/S, including cameras, GPS and gear sensors, all connected to a control box where data was stored on two mirrored hard-discs. Video recording started when the vessel left the harbour (predefined mailbox coordinates) and automatically turned off when entering the harbour again, using the GPS signal to trace position.

    A brief description of the specific goals of the program:

    1. Analyze the effect of a free gear selection in a CQM setting, using REM as documentation tool.
    2. Analyze observer bias in REM.
