Item Identification

Title: Larval Bluefin Tuna ecology
Status: In Work
Abstract:

Fisheries oceanography research cruises were conducted aboard the NOAA Ship Gordon Gunter. During the survey, plankton samples are collected from a systematic grid of stations to assess distribution, occurrence, and abundance of the early life stages of a variety of species of fishes and invertebrates. This survey specifically targets larval bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus). Directed sampling efforts to assess tuna spawning and larval habitat in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico were the main focus of this study.

Purpose:

To study larval bluefin tuna assemblages and ecology

Lineage

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 284696
Description:

Data from some gear types are recorded on paper forms in the field, then entered into Excel sheets and finally an Access database. Those gear which are run by computer programs generate data directly into computer files. These data sometimes must be extracted into Excel form, then uploaded to Access database. Identifications are directly entered into Excel spreadsheets.
