Deep Water Survey Data

Metadata Updated: June 9, 2023

The deep water biodiversity surveys explore and describe the biodiversity of the bathy- and bentho-pelagic nekton using Midwater and bottom trawls. The covered area includes the western North Atlantic between the vicinity of Bear Seamount and Physalia Seamount, and areas surrounding the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR-ECO), focusing on the Charlie Gibbs Fracture Zone.

Lineage Vessel sensor data are collected electronically using SCS. Station, catch and biological data were collected on paper logs until 2003 when it was collected digitally using the Fisheries Scientific Computing System (FSCS) V 1.0 data acquisition software. The survey conducted in 2014 utilized an updated version of the FSCS data acquisition system. Data were audited after completion of a survey and prior to being released.
