Skate identities of the Falkland Islands July 2017

The dataset is an excel file with data on 82 specimens of 12 different species of elasmobranchs collected at 49 stations in the northern and western parts of the Falkland Islands Interim Conservation and Management Zone (FICZ) and some grid squares of the northern part of the Falkland Islands Outer Conservation Zone (FOCZ). The data were gathered during the Scientific Programme of Research Cruise ZDLT1-07-2017. Data comprises of taxonomic id of the specimens, measurements (in cm) of the size of the specimens and determination of their sex. Additionally, photographs of the specimens were taken along with tissue samples for subsequent DNA analysis for genetic identification of the specimens. Additionally it was collected also the spiral valve to study their tapeworms. Information on each specimen can be accessed at in the host database, typing "FA" in the collection code field.

Lineage Data were collected during the Research Cruise ZDLT1-07-2017 from fresh specimens during the Ground Fish Survey Season 2. A total of 82 fresh elasmobranchs, collected from trawls, were photographed and measured. Tissue samples of each individual for DNA analysis were stored in molecular vials in ethanol 95%. Additionally, spiral valves (intestines) were collected and fixed either in ethanol or in formalin for molecular and morphological analysis of cestodes, respectively. Information on the elasmobranchs will be summarised in Excel file.
