In order to allow the addition of new fields minimising the impact on the rest of the surveys, DATRAS will stop accepting submissions without headers from Q3 2022. This will allow new fields to be added as requested by the different DATRAS stakeholders without requiring format changes for all submitters.
New field added to the CA records: LiverWeight
This field was requested by BITS in 2020.
Following a recommendation from WKASMSF (Workshop for advancing sexual maturity staging in fish in 2018), only two scales will be accepted for new submissions from now on: M6 and SMSF
