|Title:||Swordfish Stomach Content Data, 1989-2000|
Stomach contents were tabulated for 734 swordfish (Xiphias gladius) from the central North Pacific from 1989 to 2000 (most from 1994-1998). The swordfish were captured by various commercial fishermen (with stomachs collected by the Pacific Islands Region Observer Program) or during PIFSC research cruises. Prey items from the stomachs were identified to the lowest taxonomic rank possible, enumerated, weighed, and measured, primarily by Bruce Mundy, Michael Seki, Happy Williams, Alan Everson, with assistance from Fisheries Observers from the Pacific Islands Regional Office. Associated data on fish length, weight, collection year, month, and location were obtained from observer, fishermen, or cruise data records, or from whole fish brought to the laboratory.
Results from these data have not been published.
