Data from: Evaluating fish scale preservation in sediment records from the oxygen minimum zone off Peru

Renato Salvatteci, David B. Field, Timothy Baumgartner, Vicente Ferreira & Dimitri Gutierrez
Fish scales accumulating in marine laminated sediments can provide a record of population variability of small pelagic fishes. Although some studies have noted signs of scale degradation that could affect estimates of population variability, there are presently no well-developed means to evaluate degradation. We developed several indices as indicators of fish scale preservation in two box-cores that we collected off Pisco (14ºS), one at 301 m near the center of the oxygen minimum zone (OMZ),...
