  1. Sites A and B are mapped in Fig. 1. Mesh refers to the number of ~5″ (~13 cm) square meshes that determine the depth of the net. TDR: serial number of the time-depth recorder (used to select the net to view on the animator)
  2. in. inches, ft. feet, UN unknown, N number (1 inch = 2.54 cm; 210 feet ≈ 64 m)
  3. aThese nets were equipped with additional depth recorders on the breastline at ¼, ½, and ¾ of the depth of the net, as well as on the center of the leadline
