Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Aug 23, 2016 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

This record contains catch and effort data from scientific bottom trawl surveys carried out along the coast of South East Australia between 1898 and 1996. The data is on demersal chondrichthyes and osteichthyes. Data used was from multiple research vessels form various agencies and historical archives, The vessels included Soela, Courageous, Kapala, Zeehan, Challenger, Mary Belle, Bluefin, Petuna Endeavour, Margaret Philippa, Dannevig and Endeavour. Please refer to documentation link for further information.

Additional Metadata

marine, harvested by iOBIS Original data is from CSIRO historical archives, IMAS database (Jeremy Lyle), NSW DPI database (Ken Graham), James Craig (DPI, NSW) and O&A Data Centre holdings. Data approved for public release on 17/03/2016 by Jeremy Lyle (UTAS IMAS and Neil Klaer (CSIRO O&A Hobart).

Purpose Bottom trawl surveys were carried out in South East Australia between 1898 and 1997, and sampled demersal fish communities of this region both before and at different stages since trawling begun. These surveys were performed by various research agencies, which collected and organized catch and effort data in different formats; also the detail of the information reported changed across surveys and over the years. Despite the value of these data, there has not yet been a systematic effort to collect, digitalize and standardize all of the information available.
