The R/V «Johan Ruud» was built in 1976 at Sterkoder Mekaniske Verksted Ltd., Kristiansund (Norway) as a stern trawler for multipurpose research activities (fishery and marine biological, geological and oceanographic surveys) in open waters along the coastline and fjord areas. The range of investigations include fish resource assessments, hydrographic and trawl surveys, geological bottom sediment sampling and acoustic registrations of the sediment layers below the sea-bed.
