Quality It is envisaged that the dataset could grow with the addition of further samples. Fish were caught on lines off the ice edge. Fish were then stored in formalin for transfer back to the AAD, where laboratory analysis was conducted on the samples. The stomach samples were then further sorted and analysed. All the data were collated and manipulated to form an Access database.
