Beaufort Sea Marine Fishes Project (BSMFP) 2012 - Sampling Stations

Beaufort Sea Marine Fishes Project (BSMFP) 2012 - Sampling Stations From August 5th to September 3rd, 2012, Fisheries and Oceans Canada conducted a baseline survey of marine fishes and their habitats on the Canadian Beaufort Shelf and slope. Sampling was conducted from the F/V Frosti at 28 stations along four transects. Standardized sampling was conducted at pre-determined depth stations (20-40, 75, 200, 350, 500, 750, and 1000 m) using a variety of sampling equipment including benthic fishing trawls, plankton nets, sediment cores, and CTD and water sample profiles. A specialized CTD probe (UCTD) was deployed at an additional 30 locations while the ship was underway. Presented here is the information on the sampling locations, and the sampling gear deployed at each station. 2022-01-06 Fisheries and Oceans Canada kevin.jacobs@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyBeam TrawlsField SurveysMyoxocephalus spPleuronectidaeAnimal Ecology and BehaviorArthropodsCheliceratesAmphipodsCopepodsDecapodsEuphausiids (krill)IsopodsMysidsOstracodsHexapodsHydrozoansEchinodermsBrittle/Basket StarsSea StarsSea UrchinsEntoproctsClamsCephalopodsRibbon WormsAnimals/VertebratesFishLampreys/HagfishesRay-finned FishesAnchovies/HerringsCods/HaddocksFloundersPerch-like FishesSalmons/TroutsSharks/Rays/ChimaerasForaminifersPLANKTONAquatic EcosystemsBenthic HabitatDemersal HabitatMarine HabitatPelagic HabitatPlanktonZooplanktonCommunity StructureFood-web DynamicsPrimary ProductionBENTHICOceansAquatic SciencesAquacultureOcean TemperatureWater TemperatureConductivityConductivity; Temperature; DepthTEMPERATURE LOGGERSNISKIN BOTTLESPLANKTON NETSTrawlActinopterygiiAmblyraja radiataAnnelidaArtediellus atlanticusArthropodaBrachiopodaChionoecetes opilioCiona intestinalisClupeidaeClupeiformesCnidariaCottidaeCyclopteridaeCyclopterus lumpusEchinodermataGadidaeGadiformesGadus ogacGlyptocephalus cynoglossusHyas coarctatusIcelus spatulaMallotus villosusMolluscaMyoxocephalus quadricornisOsmeridaeOsmeriformesPerciformesPetromyzontidaePetromyzontiformesPleurogonaPleuronectiformesPoriferaRajiformesScorpaeniformesSqualiformesArctic OceanBeaufort SeaAnimal researchAnimal populationsAquatic ecosystemsAquatic animalsAquatic wildlifeBiologyArctic ecosystemsBiological diversityCollaborative researchMarine biologyIchthyologyNorthern CanadaOceanographyOffshore areaScientific researchZoology BSMFP_2012_SamplingESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/BSMFP_2012/MapServer/0 2012 sampling stationsCSV https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/BSMFP/2012_Sampling.csv Data dictionaryPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/BSMFP/Datadictionary_DictionnaireDonnees.pdf BSMFP_2012_SamplingESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/BSMFP_2012/MapServer/0
