This dataset is the result from sampling at 5 stations at the Polar Front in the western part of the Barents Sea. The samples were collected between 20 May 2022 and 25 May 2022. 5 pelagic trawl samples were collected with a Harstad pelagic trawl, which has an effective height of 9-11 m and width of 10-12 m when towed at ca. 3 knots. The mesh size of the inner liner of the cod end was 10 mm. The pelagic trawl was towed at ca. 3 knots for 20-30 min and abundances were standardized by converting to catch per unit effort (expressed in kilograms per cubic meter).
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 19 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
