Imagine the ‘thrill' of raging seas and heavy winds pounding against the shivering hull of a research vessel, in the middle of the English Channel, on a cold December night! You are a biologist in a team researching and surveying the distribution, growth and migratory patterns of flounder in the seas around Plymouth. Can you track the flounder as they migrate to and from their feeding grounds? You have a research budget of £40,000 which you need to spend wisely. Decide where to look for the flounder correctly, and you will get all of the data you need. However, cast you nets in the wrong place too many times and you will spend your budget without completing the research.
