Title: AFSC/ABL: Lipid Dataset of Alaskan fish, marine mammals, and invertebrates
Short Name: AFSC/ABL: Lipid Dataset of Alaskan fish, marine mammals, and invertebrates
Status: In Work
Publication Date: Unknown

The Nutritional Ecology Laboratory maintains a database containing all of the biochemical data we collect. The database includes seasonal information regarding size, age, location, date, developmental stage, and maturity status of all the specimens we have examined. Samples range from phytoplankton to whales and seals. Depending on the objectives of specific studies, these data can be matched to measures of energy content, proximate, lipid class, and fatty acid composition.


This lipid dataset captures nutritional information from fisheries, marine mammals, and invertebrates as collected from 1998 through the present.
