    Survey operations are expected to last for 4 days although, depending on weather and conditions, the days may not run consecutively. Survey operations should not interfere with any other vessel but as ‘MERSEY GUARDIAN’ will be restricted in its ability to manoeuvre during sampling passing vessel are requested to give a wide berth and keep clear.
