Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 2337 See the link below for public details on this project.

---- Public Summary from Project ----
The experimental krill research program is focused on obtaining life history information of use in managing the krill fishery - the largest Antarctic fishery. In particular, the program will concentrate on studies into schooling, growth and ageing of ... View entire text

Quality The dataset available for download includes:

1) validated database (only specimens representative of natural growth rates)
2) Summary information of the stations
3) All IGR data including unvalidated data.

Natural growth rates of krill are only measured from the specimens that moulted within 5 days from the start of each experiment. All IGR data include data from specimens that moulted after 5 days as well as the specimens with incomplete sets of data, for example 'growth could not be measured due to damaged body parts', etc.
