AFSC/RACE/SAP/Cummiskey: Red king crab sonic tagging and dive database

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

This is data from a long-term monitoring project which utilized sonic tags to follow aggregations of red king crab in Womens Bay near Kodiak Alaska. The database consists of four major tables: Sonic tags: An inventory of all tags used recording crab size and sex dates of tag release and recovery, and if possible the reason for tag loss. Locations: Field locations in latitude, longitude, and depth for sonic tags, generally acquired on a weekly basis. Dive summary:A summary of dive observations on sonic tagged crab aggregations to document crab behavior and habitat use. Crab measurements:Measurements of crab carapace lengths, sex, and shell conditions of diver-collected crab from crab aggregations associated with tagged crab.
