  1. Dates over which fish were tagged, total number of tags deployed, number of tags that either reported remotely after 1 year at liberty or were recaptured multiple years after deployment (Displ.), produced light data suitable for estimation of at-liberty longitude or daily maximum depth data and, therefore, produced data used in analyses (Usable); and the range and mean forklengths of the fish included, for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) tagged with pop-up archival transmitting tags in the Aleutian Islands and Eastern Bering Sea (EBS), and a transition zone between those ecosystems and the western Gulf of Alaska
