Lingcod Positions 20062008

InPort Dataset ID: 20591

InPort Entity ID: 35529

This file contains the result of a lingcod tagging/tracking study conducted using VEMCO acoustic tracking equipment. Tagging was done in two waves (Summer 2006 and Summer 2008). Data are the x-y position of individual fish within the tracking array (XPOS, YPOS) or latitude and longitude of the fish's position at a specific time. The relocations of fixed pingers are included to allow for the removal the effects of tides, which move the receiver buoys. See Tolimieri, N., K. Andrews, G. Williams, S. Katz, and P. S. Levin. 2009.
