This survey was conducted by the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center aboard NOAA ships David Starr Jordan, Endeavor and McArthur for a combined total of approximately 42,000 kilometers surveyed from late July to early December 1998. This dataset provides the time-date and geographical coordinates, by species/stock, of all cetaceans detected during the survey, as well as the daily and intra-daily start and end points of the line-transect survey by the NOAA Ship David Starr Jordan.Purpose:The primary purpose of the survey was to collect information necessary to estimate abundance of dolphin stocks in the eastern tropical Pacific that are taken as bycatch in the yellowfin tuna purse seine fishery.Supplemental information:This dataset is supplemental to the following datasets: SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1986, Cruise 989SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1986, Cruise 990SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1987, Cruise 1080SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1987, Cruise 1081SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1988, Cruise 1164SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1988, Cruise 1165SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1989, Cruise 1267SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1989, Cruise 1268SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1990, Cruise 1369SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, MOPS 1990, Cruise 1370SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 1998, Cruise 1610SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 1998, Cruise 1611SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 1999, Cruise 1613SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 1999, Cruise 1614SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2000, Cruise 1615SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2000, Cruise 1616SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2003, Cruise 1623SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2003, Cruise 1624SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2006, Cruise 1630SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR 2006, Cruise 1631SWFSC Marine Mammal Survey, STAR-LITE 2007, Cruise 1634
