  1. Mean depths at which fish were captured and released (tagging), during the fishes’ summer shallow-water and winter deep-water phases, the mean dates of arrival and departure from and resulting population-level average duration occupying deep-water habitat for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) tagged with pop-up archival transmitting tags during 2008 and 2009 in the Aleutian Islands, Eastern Bering Sea (EBS), and a Transition Zone between those ecosystems and the western Gulf of Alaska
