Item Identification

Title: AFSC/REFM: Flatfish maturity near Kodiak, 2012-2013
Short Name: AFSC/REFM: Flatfish maturity near Kodiak, 2012-2013
Status: Completed

The dataset is comprised of individual fish records from collections made during port sampling at Kodiak Alaska for the purpose of updating maturity estimates for selected GOA flatfish. The collections were made by an Alaska Fisheries Databank funded sampler. Sample preparation, ageing and histological determination of maturity state were completed by AFSC staff.


Provide updated estimates of female maturity for selected GOA flatfish species.
