An experimental survey was carried out in NAFO Regulatory Area (Div. 6EFGH and 4XWVs) and adjacent international Southern waters during last Quarter of year 2004, with one polyvalent Spanish trawler, using "Gloria" pelagic gear and bottom gear, with the aim to obtain data on distribution and biology on pelagic and demersal species in non-habitual grounds for the Spanish fleet. A scientific observer was on board to collect the information on fishing activity (effort, depth, etc.) and biological data (length distributions, length-weight relationships, etc.). A total of 119 hauls were carried out. Samplings were conducted in a wide geographical and bathymetrical range. During the survey, Alfonsino (Beryx splendens) was the main caught species.
