Description Format Topic(s) Note Source Examples

Description

Assigned ages (from otoliths) and fork lengths of Bull Trout (Salvelinus confluentis) from two Rocky Mountain lakes in Alberta, CAN before and after a regulation change.

Format

A data frame with 96 observations on the following 4 variables:

age

Age (from otoliths).

fl

Fork length (mm).

lake

Lake (Harrison and Osprey).

era

Era of collection (1977-80 and 1997-01). See details.

Topic(s)

Note

The historical (1977-1980) era samples were from before restrictive sportfishing regulatory regimes were implemented (in the 1990s) that led to changes in abundance and population structure of bull trout.
