We made no attempt to estimate the percentage of C type dives, because most male dives on FFAs appear to be bathymetrically
constrained, making it difficult to distinguish these dives from flat-bottom dives.
The reasons for these differences in relative catch weight are unclear, but may be due to geographically and bathymetrically
concentrated commercial fishing effort.
Both are bathymetrically
channeled towards Point Hope (ca.
The first is a representative sampling of the population both latitudinally and bathymetrically
, and over a time frame of decades.
