Item Identification

Title: Guam Biological Sampling Data
Status: Completed

This dataset contains information on fishing activity collecting biololgical samples for better understanding life history of bottomfish in Guam. 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 measurements.


Data collected on age, length-weight, and reproduction across a more diverse sampling domain (more than just a single fish auction) and size spectrum than currently available.
