All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Description

Data from fish captured by Erwin, Casey 1988. Includes fish size, weight, sex, reproductive stage data as well as quantitative stomach contents data and qualitative position data. Approximate locations where fish were caught are provided in the database. Additionally an approximate image map is also provided as a visual reference. These data are stored in an Access Database.

Additionally, another Microsoft Access database containing data from this cruise, plus several others is available for download from the URL given below. The Entry ID's of the other metadata records also related to this data are:

Quality

It is envisaged that the dataset could grow with the addition of further samples. Fish were caught on lines off the ice edge. Fish were then stored in formalin for transfer back to the AAD, where laboratory analysis was conducted on the samples. The stomach samples were then further sorted and analysed. All the data were collated and manipulated to form an Access database.

Access

These data are publicly available for download from the provided URL.

Additionally, an Access database containing other data from this cruise and several others, is accessible via the parent metadata record.
