Young Fish Survey Data 1981 to 2010

Cefas
Total numbers of individual fish identified during the Cefas Young Fish Survey (YFS) which ran from 1981 to 2010. The survey deployed a light 2-meter beam trawl to survey inshore locations for small / young fish around the British Isles, predominantly along the south and east coasts. Total numbers of fish (identified to species or if not to the highest taxonomic level) were recorded at each station, and were measured in the majority of cases....

Ferry Routes Monitoring System (Historical)

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. Near surface temperature and salinity samples have been collected by ferries, the most recent, the Stena Partner, along 52°N between Harwich (formerly Felixstowe) and Rotterdam, from August 1970 onwards. Throughout the year, at weekly intervals, temperature data were recorded and water samples taken...

Reconstruction of North Sea trawling effort 1985-2015

Strategy Data Governance
Spatial distribution of total international otter and beam trawling fishing effort, for all ICES rectangles (0.5 degree latitude by 1 degree longitude) of the North Sea, covering a 31-year time span from 1985 to 2015. The dataset was largely reconstructed using compiled effort data from 7 fishing effort time-series and completed by estimations of missing data. Lat and Long coordinates in the data represent the centre of each ICES rectangle. For the 31-year period from...

One file contains spectrum analysis for some of the particles carried out with a ATR-FTIR. A READ-ME text file contains description of columns content for these two csv files. There is a .zip file that includes a csv file with the description of...

Cefas Electronic Data Storage-Tag Database

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. Electronic tags that record temperature and depth were attached to, or implanted into, cod caught in the southern North Sea between 1999 and 2009 (for methods see Neat et al., 2014). Data from tags that were returned from recaptured cod were downloaded and...

The effect of acid and neutral Lugol's iodine solution on phytoplankton sample preservation, experimental results

Oliver Williams
The data are the results of lab experiments conducted in 2013-2014 at the Cefas laboratory, Lowestoft, UK. Multiple marine phytoplankton taxa were preserved in one of three different Lugol's Iodine solutions (one neutral and two acidified at different strengths). Samples were enumerated over a period of 8 months to investigate degradation rates across taxa and preservatives. Samples consisted of 5 cultured species Ditylum brightwellii, Prorocentrum lima, Karenia mikimotoi, Coccolithus pelagicus & Tetraselmis suecica and one...
