NODC Standard Format Pathology Data Sets (1973 -1980): Fin Rot (F006) DataEntry ID: NODC_F006
Abstract: The Fin Rot (F006) dataset contains data from examinations of the
biological condition of diseased fishes. For tow samples collected, data
include: total number of individuals of a given species, number of
diseased fish of that species, and extent of damage to the body and
various fins for up to three selected diseased individuals. The
specimens are identified by the NODC Taxonomic Code. The survey,
institution, senior scientist and station are identified. Parameters
defining environmental conditions at the sample location at the time of
collection (e.g., water temperature and salinity, air temperature, wind
direction and speed) may also be recorded.
