Seabird conservation in the Antarctic toothfish longline fishery - results and time-depth recorder data
Entry ID: ASAC_2295_TDR

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This research was a manipulative experiment on an autoline toothfish vessel in the Ross Sea testing the effect of a line shooter on the sink rate of autolines. The vessel was production fishing during the trial. Future users of the data should be familiar with the associated published paper, especially the Introduction (which spells out the context) and Methods. Users should also be familiar with ...
