CSCAPE (Collaborative Survey of Cetacean Abundance and the Pelagic Ecosystem) 2005 was a shipboard survey conducted aboard the NOAA ships David Starr Jordan and McArthur II to assess marine mammals and their ecosystem off the U.S. West Coast. It was designed to survey waters off California, Oregon and Washington from the coast to 300 nmi (556 km) offshore, and to provide additional fine-scale coverage within four of the five West Coast National Marine Sanctuaries (NMS). This dataset provides the time-date and geographical coordinates, by species/stock, of all cetaceans detected during the survey, as well as the daily and intra-daily start and end points of the line-transect survey by the NOAA Ship McArthur II. more

The primary purpose of the survey was to assess the abundance and distribution of marine mammals and seabirds, and to characterize the pelagic ecosystem within the National Marine Sanctuaries and in the ecological context of the broader California Current region.
