Title: Rockfish Positions (2006)
Short Name: Rockfish Positions (2006)
Status: Planned
Abstract:

This file contains the result of a rockfish tagging/tracking study conducted using VEMCO acoustic tracking equipment. Tagging was done in Summer/Fall 2006. Data are the x-y position of individual fish within the tracking array (XPOS, YPOS) or latitude and longitude of the fish's position at a specific time. The relocations of fixed pingers are included to allow for the removal the effects of tides, which move the receiver buoys. See Tolimieri, N., K. Andrews, G. Williams, S. Katz, and P. S. Levin. 2009. Home range size and patterns of space use by lingcod, copper rockfish and quillback rockfish in relation to diel and tidal cycles. Marine Ecology Progress Series 380:229-243.
