Survey Protocols - SISP

The newest series of publications provides manuals covering protocols and procedures used in ICES surveys.

​​​​​​​​​The Series of ICES Survey Protocols (SISP) is an online series of ecosystem (fishery) survey manuals, covering the protocols and procedures used in ICES-coordinated fisheries and ecosystem surveys, including trawl, acoustic, and ichthyoplankton surveys. SISP will also be available to ICES coordinated regional integrated ecosystem surveys conducted using different sampling gears.

Survey protocols and manuals are living documents. Pre-2012 versions of the manuals will not be included in the series, and manuals will be updated as required. The manuals will only be available electronically, and the latest versions can be found in our online library.

Assisting secretary Julie Krogh helps coordinate production of the SISP manuals. ​
