Herring Survey Population Density and Distribution (F057) Data (1976-1977)
Entry ID: FW00088

Abstract: The data type contains data from aircraft surveys of herring schools.
These data were collected to provide information on herring
population density and distribution. Start date and time, start
and end positions, and aircraft type, altitude and airspeed were
reported for each survey. Surveys were conducted for preassigned
areas; mid-point positions of census areas were reported.
Environmental information may include meteorological conditions,
sea state, air roughness and water clarity. Census data include
species identification, school position and activity, school size
index and number of schools sighted. Predominant beach type,
biota type and escarpment type may also be indicated.
