  1. Also listed are the total numbers of ‘archived’ data (2-min resolution) and ‘transmitted’ data (30- or 60-min resolution) between the identified dates and times
  2. aIndicates a minimum deployment time, as there were no data recovered that registered surface depths on the deployment date. PSAT 131932 was recovered in the halibut fishery, attached to the halibut
