Oceanographic and fisheries data collected from NOAA and academic research vessels, and commercial menhaden vessels in Gulf of Mexico from 1988-06-14 to 1991-06-22 (NCEI Accession 0156304)

Oceanographic and fisheries data were collected during 1988 through 1991 through a multiagency research project to develop a remote sensing system to provide near real time image products to fishermen in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. The data included surface water temperatures, salinities, and chlorophyll samples acquired by boats and vessels and fish catch information reported by menhaden spotter pilots and vessel captains. The environmental and fisheries data were acquired concurrently with overflights of the Airborne Ocean Color Imager (AOCI) carried on a Learjet operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The AOCI is a multispectral scanner and was configured with sensors to remotely sense water color in coastal and oceanic waters. The environmental and fisheries data were used to develop experimental data products that were distributed to fishermen in near real time. The study area encompassed the area from southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River to Marsh Island, Louisiana. These are only the fisheries and environmental data. Remotely sensed data are not available.
