Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
TRIP_ID VARCHAR2(8 BYTE) Trip identification number. Format is JAYYXX; so a ‘JA’ is followed by the last two digits of the trip year and then a sequential trip number, which starts at 01 for each year. So ‘JA7802’ is the second trip observed in 1978. It should be noted that this ID number appears to have been generated well after data collection; it does not appear on data sheets.
100
HAUL_GEAR VARCHAR2(5 BYTE) This 4 or 5 digit number represents the NMFS gear code for pelagic longline (675), prefixed by the haul number. So 12675 is the twelfth haul of this trip.
100
INCIDENTAL_TAKE VARCHAR2(1 BYTE) This variable indicates if a turtle, marine mammal, or sea bird was caught during this haul (value=1) or there was no catch of these species (Value=0).
100
BOUYS VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Number of buoys used in the set. This variable tracks to the variable “NO. OF FLTS” on the paper data forms.
100
HOOKS VARCHAR2(5 BYTE) Number of hooks used in the set. This variable tracks to the variable “NO. OF HOOKS” on the paper data forms.
100
BEGIN_SET_DATE VARCHAR2(8 BYTE) Begin Set Date. The format is not quite straightforward. The last 4 digits are always the year, the two places preceding the year are the day of the month, although for single digit days there are no leading zeros, only a blank space. The one or two digits beginning the numeric string are the month, but this time with no space taking the place of a zero for single digit months; the single digit just starts the string. So for example October first 1979 is represented in the format 10 11979 and July 21st 1980 is represented as 7211980.
100
BEGIN_HAUL_DATE VARCHAR2(8 BYTE) Begin Haul date. The format is not quite straightforward. The last 4 digits are always the year, the two places preceding the year are the day of the month, although for single digit days there are no leading zeros, only a blank space. The one or two digits beginning the numeric string are the month, but this time with no space taking the place of a zero for single digit months; the single digit just starts the string. So for example October first 1979 is represented in the format 10 11979 and July 21st 1980 is represented as 7211980.
100
BS_HOUR VARCHAR2(2 BYTE) Hour, in 24 hour format, of the beginning of the set.
100
ES_HOUR VARCHAR2(2 BYTE) Hour, in 24 hour format, of the end of the set.
100
BH_HOUR VARCHAR2(2 BYTE) Hour, in 24 hour format, of the beginning of the haul.
100
EH_HOUR VARCHAR2(2 BYTE) Hour, in 24 hour format, of the end of the haul.
100
BS_LAT VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Latitude at the beginning of the set, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
BS_LON VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Longitude at the beginning of the set, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
ES_LAT VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Latitude at the end of the set, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
ES_LON VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Longitude at the end of the set, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
BH_LAT VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Latitude at the beginning of the haul, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
BH_LON VARCHAR2(4 BYTE) Longitude at the beginning of the haul, in 4 digit format (first two are degrees, second two are whole minutes). A value of zero should be interpreted as a null.
100
