Every summer, The Department of Fish and Shellfish, Greenland Institute of Natural Resources (GINR), carries out a number of standard surveys on an annual basis using an ocean-going research vessel for offshore surveys and R/V Sanna for inshore surveys.

Surveys form the basis of the annual biological assessment on the Greenlandic stock of fish and shellfish.
