The R/V "Hyas" is a glass-fibre Viksund, type Proffsjark 1200, built in 1987 at Akselsens Mekaniske Verksted a.s., Sigerfjord (Norway), for multipurpose research activities (fishery and marine biological, geological and oceanographic surveys) in open waters for the fjord areas adjacent to Tromsø. The range of investigations include hydrographic and trawl surveys, bottom samples by small dredges, operation of conventional fishing gears (gillnet, longline, jigging), diving activities.
Most research activities will be carried out in the fjords systems close to Tromsø, and usually based on day-trips.
