Abstract

Report on evidence of shrinkage of live coral trout during professional fishing operations on the Great Barrier Reef in 2000. Excel data includes the following fields:

Column A. Fish (fish number from 1 -24)
Column B. Bin (1-8, container the fish was held in during the experiment)
Column C. Measure (1-7, number of the measurement of each fish)
Column D. Observer (1 or 2, making the measurement)
Column E. Time 2
Column F. Time (time of the day the measurement was made)
Column G. FL (Fork Length)
Column H. TL (Total Length)
Column I. Difference (difference in length between measures)
Column J. Order
Column K. Temperature (surface water temp under the boat)
