Item Identification

Title: Guam Exploratory Survey Data
Status: Completed
Abstract:

These datasets contain information on contracted fishing trips for an exploratory analysis of the feasibility of a fishery-independent bottomfish survey in Guam. Fishing occurred in 2012 and 2014 on Galvez bank using similar research-fishing practices to the exploratory fishing surveys done in the Main Hawaiian Islands. The data contain information on trip, catch, and effort. The trip specific data contains information on fisher and vessel, observer (person who entered the data), the port trip started in, start time and day and end time and day of trip, the fishing area, and species targeted. The effort data contains information on fishing set up including the number of hooks, species targeted, rigging type, bait used, drift and anchor usage, and time spent fishing; as well as environmental information including wave height, depth, current and wind speed. The catch data contains vessel identification, location, date, the species caught and their length, and whether gonads or the head were saved for reproductive and age measurments.

Purpose:

Collect fishing effort and catch information to test the viability of applying the fishery-independent survey design used in Hawaiian waters to waters in Guam to then form the foundation for future development of a fully robust survey design for Guam.
