MetadataShow full item record
In 2002 the R/V Vizconde de Eza will replace the C/V Playa de Menduíña in conducting the Platuxa bottom trawl series carried out by the Centro Oceanográfico de Vigo (Oceanographic Center of Vigo) since 1995. So in May of 2001 a comparative fishing experience was conducted to transform the series of the indices previously obtained and maintain the continuity of the time series obtained by the C/V Playa de Menduíña. A 81 parallel hauls series was performed. For each of the main species: American Plaice, Yellowtail flounder, Cod, Witch flounder and Thorny skate, the catches of both vessels were compared and a linear fit for these catches is presented. Also, we performed a comparative study on the catches by lenght for American plaice and Yellowtail flounder by a probability variant of the logistic curve, assuming unequal catches between the two vessels, and a fit to transformed these data. As anticipated, the values of the new indices were lower than the previous values, because teh Pedreira ...
