This data was collected during a AB-202 Helmer Hanssen field cruise in the spring of 2023. The cruise lasted from 26.04-01.05. The stations were Kongsfjorden (KB3), Magdalenafjorden (MAG), marginal ice zone (MIZ) and Billefjorden (BAB). The data was collected with a benthic trawl at each of the stations.
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 14 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
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 fish was collected for sampling via bottom trawl and was conducted on four different days and locations. The mean travel speed was 3 and the trawling lasted for approximately 15 minutes. The benthic trawls was a Campelen 1800 bottom trawl (mesh size 10 mm), with trawl door spread 48-52 m and opening height 4.5-5.2 m.
|Study Extent||The study sites were Kongsfjorden (KB3), Magdalenafjorden (MAG), marginal ice zone (MIZ) and Billefjorden (BAB). The samples were taken with benthic trawls.|
Method step description:
- Took benthic trawl. Sorted fish. Identified fish. Took subsamples. Dissecated and took measurements of the fish and organs.
