Brief description

This dataset shows details of foreign squid fishing in Australian waters from 1977 to 1987. The data is sourced from daily fishing returns recorded by the foreign fishers while at sea. Data provided is by individual fishing operation. Weights are estimates only.

Appropriate use and limitations of the data
==
The catch weight data in logbooks are estimates only which have been recorded by fishers while at sea. Fishers usually cannot accurately weigh fish at sea, so the estimated weights are mostly based on volume (for example, the size and number of boxes of fish caught). At this time, positions are also estimates as GPS navigation systems did not exist.
