Southeast Fisheries Science Center, 2023: Fishery Dependent Pelagic Longline Section Log Data,

Item Identification

Title: Fishery Dependent Pelagic Longline Section Log Data
Status: Completed

The Southeast Fisheries Science Center Mississippi Laboratories conducts research and develops gear modifications to mitigate bycatch in fisheries. The data set includes data from three pelagic longline bycatch mitigation research projects, including the Grand Banks sea turtle mitigation research (2002-2003), Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Cooperative Research Project (2005), and Gulf of Mexico bluefin tuna mitigation research (2008-2012). These data were collected in conjunction with the SEFSC Pelagic Observer Program (POP) to augment the existing POP data by including set position, haul position, and surface temperature for the start and end of each section of longline.


To conduct gear evaluations to mitigate pelagic longline bycatch.
