Juvenile salmon collected from Tucker trawls and CTD and ADCP data from units towed simultaneously in the coastal Gulf of Alaska, 2001 - 2004
Entry ID: Salmon_hauldata_CGOA_NEP

Abstract: Juvenile salmon, pelagic fishes, zooplankton, CTD and ADCP observations were collected with the surface towing of a rope trawl, a Tucker trawl (1-m2 net with 505 micro-mesh), and a WP-2 vertical plankton sampler (253 micro-mesh net)deployed vertically to a depth of 100m . Sampling was conducted during the period 17 July 2001 to 12 November 2004 during cruises GP0108, GP0207, GP0401 and MF0310. The survey area included the coastal waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Transects sampled during the survey were run perpendicular to shore and extended from nearshore across the continental shelf to oceanic waters beyond the 200m shelf break.

Quality These data should be considered raw/unedited and have not had post-cruise calibrations applied. The data are poor until the net gets into the water.
Use Constraints Any person making substantial use of a data set must communicate with the investigators who acquired the data prior to publication and anticipate that the data collectors will be co-authors of published results. This extends to model results and to data organized for retrospective studies.
