Request for Quotation for the provision of sea going sampling services

The contractor will be required to undertake catch sampling at sea aboard commercial fishing vessels in line with the current requirements of the Cefas Discard Monitoring Project. One of the main features of this project is that the permission of vessel owners and skippers is needed before sampling can proceed, and it is essential, therefore, that standards of professional behaviour and Cefas’ reputation are maintained to optimise access to the fleet. The contractor may also carry out similar catch sampling work on other related Cefas contracts as and when required, including port sampling.
