CSIRO, Soviet Fishery Data, Australia, 1965-1978

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Mar 13, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

This dataset comprises catch compositions and trawl locations from 35 cruises of Russian fishery research vessels carried out in Australian waters between March 1965 and April 1978, containing some 4000 demersal trawls, mostly on the Australian continental shelf, in particular the Great Australian Bight, Australian North West Shelf, and the Gulf of Carpentaria, but also on the east and west coasts, in Bass Strait, and around Tasmania. Most records include catch composition by species (presence/absence but not weight), also some data on length frequency, maturity and diet of commercially important species. The dataset is an aggregate dataset from cruises of the vessels Berg-1, Berg-2, Seskar, Raduga, Lira, Berg-3, Korifei, Sutchan, Pr. Deruygin, Prometey, SETM 8-449, Alba, Poseidon, Equator, Shantar, Bacaevo, Kamensky, Tichookeanscy, Pulk. Meridian and Mys Tichy. The data were obtained by exchange with Soviet scientists in the mid 1990s and has had CSIRO species codes incorporated.

Data Records

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 79,717 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.

Project Data

No Description available

Title Exchange and analysis of historical Soviet fishery data from the waters around Australia (FRDC project no. 93/239) 1996-1999
Funding CSIRO FRDC
Study Area Description Australian region
Design Description Fishery data from Soviet research cruises in Australian waters, 1963-1975: species composition by trawl, length frequency, maturity stage, and stomach content data. The data were reprocessed at CSIRO in Hobart by A. Koslow, P. Last and A. Williams together with taxonomic validation of as many reported species as possible.

Additional Metadata

marine, harvested by iOBIS Data were received from Soviet researchers via Dr E. Nossov and K. Zgurovsky, and entered into Oracle database at CSIRO Marine Laboratories. Where possible, taxonomic IDs were re-identified in Hobart by Drs Peter Last and Alan Williams, and identifications confirmed where possible against know distributions for the species concerned.
