The database has information of specimens of anchovy from the western coast of Baja California. This project will analyze the oceanographic and meteorological conditions of the region, with the object of establishing multiple statistic correlations among the capture values, monthly averages of these parameters and other variables of the marine environment. All these with the main purpose of knowing some aspects of the anchovy populations that can be the baseline for the rational extraction of this important resource.
This database has 738 curatorial records that belong to one species collected at 85 localities and it also belong to the SNIB .
