Item Identification

Title: LMMP_1995tblFishlength.csv
Short Name: Fishlength
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:

Each individual <100 mm Total Length measured up to 100 per taxon

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.
