    String acquisition_description 
"Two trawl nets, the \\\"Ribas net\\\" and a Faroe Island design prototype, were
constructed and tested at sea on a commercial vessel, against a conventional
two-seam groundfish net, which served as a control. The two experimental nets
both modify the top half of a trawl net; the Ribas by using large square mesh
and the Faroese by removing much of the twine at the top of the net. The
project goal was to reduce cod as bycatch up to 75-90% (and perhaps dogfish
(Squalus acanthias) bycatch as well). This net was designed to target the
following species: yellow tail flounder (Pleuronectes ferruginea), winter
flounder (Pleuronectes americanus), American plaice (Hippoglossoides
platessoides), windowpane flounder (Glyptocephalus cynoglossus), and skate
Seventy pairs of alternate tows with the control net resulted in reductions of
cod bycatch of >76% for both nets. Catch rates of sublegal yellowtail flounder
were also >74% lower for both nets compared to the control. There were,
however, reductions in the legal catch of yellowtail and winter flounders.
Underwater video showed cod exiting the nets through the top mesh or gap made
by removal of the twine. The results of this project have been presented to
the New England Fishery Management Council Multispecies Plan Development Team,
which encouraged participants to demonstrate the performance of the Ribas net
in off-shore areas. The participants have continued the research with
Saltonstall-Kennedy funding. However, modified versions of both nets were
included as options in Amendment 13 to the Groundfish Fishery Management Plan.

"A beam trawl consists of a cone-shaped body ending in a bag or codend, which retains the catch. In these trawls the horizontal opening of the net is provided by a beam, made of wood or metal, which is up to 12 m long. The vertical opening is provided by two hoop-like trawl shoes mostly made from steel. No hydrodynamic forces are needed to keep a beam trawl open.  The beam trawl is normally towed on outriggers, one trawl on each side. 
While fishing for flatfish the beam trawl is often equipped with tickler chains to disturb the fish from the seabed. For operations on very rough fishing grounds they can be equipped with chain matrices. Chain matrices are rigged between the beam and the groundrope and prevent boulders/stones from being caught by the trawl. Shrimp beam trawls  are not so heavy and have smaller mesh sizes. A bobbin of groundrope with rubber bobbins keeps the shrimp beam trawl in contact with the bottom and gives flatfish the opportunity to escape.
Close bottom contact is necessary for successful operation. To avoid bycatch of most juvenile fishes selectivity devices are assembled (sieve nets, sorting grids, escape holes). While targeting flatfish the beam trawls are towed up to seven knots, therefore the gear is very heavy; the largest gears weighs up to 10 ton. The towing speed for shrimp is between 2.5 and 3 knots.

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
