FISH SPECIES and Other Data from CAPT JACK and Other Platforms From Gulf of Mexico from 1980-06-19 to 1980-10-14 (NCEI Accession 8100335)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

Taxonomic (species) records of fish/nekton collected as part of the Brine Disposal Project Study. This study was an examination of the effects of elevated salinity levels that occurred in portions of the Gulf of Mexico, as a result of removal of a large terrestrial salt dome. The dome was dissolved and the resulting solution was pumped into the Gulf of Mexico, to allow the Department of Defense to utilize the resulting space for emergency petroleum storage. These data were collected by Texas A&M's Environmental Engineering Division from the shrimp trawler, the Captain Jack. Data parameters include vessel, agency, station, sample, and a 10-character taxonomic code "utilizing NODC taxonomic codes". Minimal documentation is available. Original data from Tape nos: B19272, B19273 and B19274 have been converted and stored in the current NODC data storage format.
