Baited remote underwater video station (BRUVS) surveys of fish in the Hawaiian Archipelago from 2012-09-01 to 2014-09-27 (NCEI Accession 0169370)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Supported by the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP), the data provided in this data set—including fish species and counts, and benthic cover—were generated from the analysis of video footage from baited underwater video station (BRUVS) surveys conducted during NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) missions in the Main Hawaiian Islands in September 2012 and November 2013, and the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands in May and September 2014.

Each BRUVS uses high-definition video cameras mounted 0.7 m apart on a base bar that is inwardly converged at 8°, set up as a stereo-video system. The video images from the cameras are subsequently analyzed to identify fish species. The use of bait attracts a wide diversity of fish species into the field of view of the cameras, but CREP is also experimenting with unbaited deployments.

  • NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) Data Sharing Recommendations, version 9.0 updated August 12, 2015: CREP welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on research issues contributing to the scientific basis for better management of marine ecosystems. CREP has a very diverse set of field activities that generates large volumes of data using an array of data collection protocols. The following recommendations are for your consideration as you use this data: 1) Data analyses should take all field exigencies into account. The most effective way to do this would be active collaboration with CREP principal investigators. 2) In all presentations, product releases, or publications using data generated by CREP, proper acknowledgement of both CREP and the individuals responsible for data collection is expected. Citing the DOI (if available) is preferred, a non-DOI example is listed below. 3) If you collect or generate data for the same study areas, CREP requests that you share relevant information on complimentary data collections. 4) Those receiving data are strongly urged to inform the CREP Data Management Team of any errors and discrepancies that are discovered during the course of using these data. They are further urged to bring to the attention of the Team all problems and difficulties encountered in using these data. This information is necessary in order to improve the collections and to facilitate more efficient and economical data processing and retrieval. The users are asked to supply copies of any missing data that may be located, and to provide information as to significant subsets and special aggregations of data that are developed in using the material provided.
