Marine Fish and Shellfish Surveys (F123) Data (1948 -1983)Entry ID: FW00096
Abstract: This data type contains data from field sampling of marine fish and
shellfish. The data derive from analyses of midwater or bottom
tow catches and provide information on population density and
Cruise information, position, date, time, gear type, fishing distance
and duration, and number of hauls are reported for each survey.
Environmental data may include: meteorological ... conditions; surface
temperature and salinity; bottom temperature and salinity; trawl depth
temperature and salinity; current direction and speed. Bottom trawl or
other gear dimensions and characteristics are also reported. Catch
statistics (e.g.,weight, volume, number of fish per unit volume) may be
reported for both total haul and for individual species. Biological
characteristics of selected specimens, predator/prey information (from
stomach contents analysis) and growth data may also be included.
Specimens are identified by an NODC Taxonomic Code. Data are very sparse
prior to 1975.
