WEBSEC-72 Trawl Data [Bluhm]



This data set represents the results of a data rescue effort focused on epibenthic invertebrates and fishes sampled by trawls by Dr. Andrew Carey in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea during the Western Beaufort Sea Ecological cruise (WEBSEC) in 1972. Megaepifauna and fish were collected during the WEBSEC-72 cruise to the US Beaufort Sea in August 1972. Bodil Bluhm digitized these data and updated the taxonomic names to the World Register of Marine Species (as of March 2013). This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project.

Please note that these data are in Alaskan Standard Time (AKST).
