Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
CATCH_KEY VARCHAR2(20 BYTE) Unique key for this file; there is a one to 6 digit prefix (starts at 1 and goes sequentially up to 401,217) which is then followed by the trip ID number (see column 1 in the effort file documentation). This column could be used to link the catch to the effort, but the number preceding the trip ID would need to be trimmed out.
100
HAUL_NUMBER VARCHAR2(2 BYTE) Haul number of this trip that this animal was caught on.
100
SPECIES_CODE VARCHAR2(7 BYTE) Species code, which is formatted as an alpha-numeric string that combines the 3 letter POP alpha species codes with 4-digit NMFS numeric codes. So YFT4655 combines the POP code YFT for yellowfin tuna with the NMFS numeric code of 4655 for yellowfin tuna.
100
LENGTH1 VARCHAR2(3 BYTE) Length in centimeters, for species other than sharks.
100
LENGTH2 VVARCHAR2(3 BYTE) Length in centimeters, for species in the shark group.
100
LENGTH_TYPE VARCHAR2(1 BYTE) A length type code that relates to whatever length appears in columns LENGTH1 or LENGTH2. The codes are 0=unknown, 1=straight length measurement, 2=curved length measurement, and 3=estimated length measurement.
100
SEX VARCHAR2(1 BYTE) Sex ID of the observed animal: : 0 = unknown, 1 = male, and 2 = female.
100
BEGIN_HAUL_DATE VARCHAR2(20 BYTE) Begin haul date, in format YYYYMMDD.
100
SPECIES_GROUP VARCHAR2(20 BYTE) SPECIES_GROUP: Species group; an alpha code that describes the general group this species fits in. There are 11 distinct values: JAPSKATES/RAYS JAPTUNA OTHER JAPTUNA JAPBILLFISH JAPSEA BIRD JAPMARINE TURTLE JAPFINFISH OTHER JAPMARINE MAMMAL JAPFINFISH JAPSHARK JAPMISC
