Description
This dataset contains abundance and biomass of fish species collected during the day from 1973 to 1980 off the coast of the southeastern United States (Cape Fear, NC to Cape Canaveral, FL). more

This dataset contains abundance and biomass of fish species collected during the day from 1973 to 1980 off the coast of the southeastern United States (Cape Fear, NC to Cape Canaveral, FL). The Yankee trawl is a bottom trawl with #72 flat nylon thread, 1.3 cm stretched mesh nylon liner, 16.5-m footrope sweep, #500 New England otter trawl doors, and 11 aluminum floats (20.3 cm diameter) spaced equally along the headrope. The footrope is equipped with 9-cm (3.5-inch) rubber rollers ("cookies"). The net has a 16.5-m footrope, 11.9-m headrope and the following stretched mesh dimensions: 11.4 cm in the wings, 10.2 cm then to 8.9 cm in the body, 5.1 cm in the cod end, and 1.3 cm in the cod end liner. The original dataset, provided by OBIS-USA, contains all distribution records. The dataset in OBIS Seamap is a subset of the original dataset, only containing marine mammal, seabird and/or sea turtle records.
