Description:

Back to Top
Abstract:
Groundfish diet data collected during the Alaska Fisheries Science Center (NOAA/NMFS) groundfish surveys in the eastern Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska regions from 1981 to the present. Groundfish diet data are also collected by fishery observers aboard commercial fishing vessels. Diet data is associated with corresponding haul location data. Diet data is described to the lowest practical taxon with the exception of fish and crab prey which a generally described to the species level. These data are in an Oracle 11g.
Purpose:
This research proposed to further define and understand the marine ecosystems that involve commercially important groundfish in the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska.
