During field work in the sea - in particular when collecting data like weight, length, sex, stadium, etc. from fish samples, the observations are first manually noted in a standardized sampling form. One popular form used for fish studies at the Inst. of Marine Research is the "Individual (V)"- form. Since the observer needs both his hands to handle the specimens, the V form is normally filled out by an assistant. In due time another assistant will transform the infomation contained in the form to an ASCII file by "punching it" into a computer. After this the data are available for general use.
