attribute len _FillValue float -9999.0
attribute len actual_range float 3.0, 300.0
attribute len comment String Estimated fork length of fish observed. All fish sizes less than 35cm are displayed as 5cm ranges and the median value is used in data reporting. Hence, a fish that is approximately 18 cm in length will be counted as 15-20cm and will appear as the value 17.5 in data outputs. All ranges increase in increments of 5cm. If an individual is greater than 35cm, then an estimate of the actual fork length is recorded. Actual size is recorded for certain managed species: all groupers, all snappers, hogfish and lionfish. Refer to Belt Transect Fish Protocols for list of these species.
attribute len ioos_category String Biology
attribute len summary String Estimated fork length of fish observed. All fish sizes less than 35cm are displayed as 5cm ranges and the median value is used in data reporting. Hence, a fish that is approximately 18 cm in length will be counted as 15-20cm and will appear as the value 17.5 in data outputs. All ranges increase in increments of 5cm. If an individual is greater than 35cm, then an estimate of the actual fork length is recorded. Actual size is recorded for certain managed species: all groupers, all snappers, hogfish and lionfish. Refer to Belt Transect Fish Protocols for list of these species.
