Item Identification

Title: Vallisneria_2003_2004_InvertLength.csv
Short Name: InvertLength
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Table contains fish count and individual length information. If count = 0, a code of '-999' in measurement column indicates nothing to measure for given record or sample. If count ≥1, a code of '-999' in measurement column indicates damaged specimens unable to measure. If fish taxon was subsampled, code '-999' in measurement column refers to number of specimens above subsample size that were not measured. Empty length column indicates parameter was not measured.

This was created by export of a sql server database

Supplemental Information:

No stations for 7, 25, 28, 29, 30 or 92, 93, 94, 95 collected. Length frequency distributions include up to 22 individuals measured per taxon at a given station. Under this original protocol, the largest and smallest specimens were located, removed, and measured first, then a subsample of up to 20 specimens were measured at random from the remainder of the sample.

Specimens of minimum and maximum length, which represent size range, are included on this length table, and were not transferred to the 'Other Inverts' biomass/weight table.

Entity Information

Entity Type: Data Table
Active Version?: Yes
Description:

Table contains total count, size range, and weight by taxon and sample. If count = 0, a code of '-999' indicates nothing to measure or weigh for given record or sample. If count = 1 or ≥2 and measurement column has '-999' code, maximum and minimum length information may be available in Fish Length Table, but was not transferred to Fish Mass Table; or, may represent damaged specimens not measured for given taxon.
