Biological parameters of spent herring (Clupea harengus) in the southern Bight of the North Sea (1942-1950)
Citation
Lescrauwaet, A.K.; Maslov, S.K.; Hamelinck, M.; (2018): Biological parameters of spent herring (Clupea harengus) in the southern Bight of the North Sea (1942-1950) as collected by Charles Gilis during the annual spent herring campaigns. Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ).

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
The dataset contains a reconstructed time series from historical research by Charles Gilis during his annual 'spent herring campaigns' that were conducted along the Belgian coastal area during spent herring season (November to March). This database contains detailed descriptions of biological parameters (length, weight, winterrings, body fat, gender, number of vertebrae etc..) collected by Gilis during his (daily) monthly scientific surveys between 1942 and 1950. more

Database reconstructed from historical research by Charles Gilis during his annual 'spent herring campaigns' that were conducted along the Belgian coastal area during spent herring season (November to March). This database contains detailed descriptions of biological parameters (length, weight, winterrings, body fat, gender, number of vertebrae etc..) collected by Gilis during his (daily) monthly scientific surveys between 1942 and 1950. The surveys are systematic collections of 25 specimens (later he expanded to collecting 50 specimens) of 'spent' herring (after spawning) caught by fishing vessels with which Gilis had made a collaboration agreement. The data are unique because they span a specific time period for which relatively information is available on the (spent) herring in the North Sea AND because they are systematic sampling method AND because they cover a very broad range of biological parameters.
