Data collected using compact IoT CTD and TD sensors mounted to commercial fishing gears. Dataset contains data from both fixed and mobile gear types. Vessels range from small scale vessels run by one person to factory trawlers. Temperature OEM accuracy is 0.05 °C or better. Automated QC procedures are in place, based upon the Argo program.
