Title: Reproductive data for groundfish
Short Name: Groundfish Reproductive Status
Status: In Work
Creation Date: 2009
Publication Date: 2013
Abstract:

The ROCKFISH database houses data from rockfish species collected by the SWFSC FED along the California coast as part of a reproductive study originating in the winter of 2009 to assess spatial, environmental and maternal effects on egg production. Basic morphometric data, reproductive state, fecundity, condition, age, sampling location and dates are recorded. In addition, historic datasets are being compiled and assimilated into the ROCKFISH database to compare current fecundity estimates to those in the 1950s, 80s, and 2000s from various published and unpublished sources. Under construction are tables documenting an ongoing effort in production ageing of chilipepper rockfish collected by the NWFSC trawl survey to assess trends in mean size-at-age from the 1980s to current and estimate reader variability and error in age estimation.

Purpose:

The purpose of the data set is to better understand variability in life history patterns, including growth and reproductive effort, of West Coast rockfish species.

Acquisition Information

Instruments

Instrument 1

CC ID: 863557
Identifier: Longline
Instrument / Gear: Gear
Instrument Type: Hooks and Lines
Description:

Longline fishing is a type of hook-and-line gear in which baited hooks attached to a mainline or ‘groundline’ are deployed from a vessel. The length of the longline and the number of hooks depend on the species targeted, the size of the vessel used, and the purpose of the fishing activity.

Instrument 2

CC ID: 863558
Identifier: Trawl Net
Instrument / Gear: Gear
Instrument Type: Trawl Nets
Description:

A funnel-shaped net towed behind a boat to capture fish. The cod end, or ‘bag,’ is the fine-meshed portion of the net most distant from the towing vessel where fish and other organisms larger than the mesh size are retained.

Platforms

Platform 1

CC ID: 863559
Identifier: Charter vessels-small boats
Description:

various vessels ranging in size (20-40 ft length) chartered for cetacean surveys when a NOAA small boat is not available.

Mounted Instrument 1

Identifier: Longline

Mounted Instrument 2

Identifier: Trawl Net
