Occurende data of polar cod Boreogadus saida (Lepechin, 1744; Gadidae; also referred to as ‘Arctic cod’)used for micro satellite analysis in High gene flow in polar cod (Boreogadus saida) from West-Svalbard and the Eurasian Basin by Maes et al 2021. A total of 171 juvenile polar cod were collected from various fjords off West-Svalbard (Billefjorden, Hornsund and Kongsfjorden), the northern Sophia Basin and the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean, was analysed using nine DNA microsatellite loci.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 171 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

This study was conducted under the Helmholtz Association Research Programme Polar regions And Coasts in the changing Earth System II (PACES II), Topic 1, WP 4 and is part of the Helmholtz Association Young Investigators Group Iceflux: Ice-ecosystem carbon flux in polar oceans (VH-NG-800).

|Funding||The SUIT net was developed by Wageningen Marine Research (formerly IMARES) with support from the Netherlands Ministry of LNV (projects WOT-04-009-036 and WOT-04-009-047.04) and the Netherlands Polar Program (NWO project ALW 866.13.009), which also supported research during Polarstern expeditions PS80 and PS92. ). SUIT operations and sampling during PS80 and PS92 were conducted by Michiel van Dorssen (Van Dorssen Metaalbewerking), André Meijboom (WMR), Carmen David (AWI), Benjamin Lange (AWI), Giulia Castellani (AWI), Martina Vortkamp (AWI), Antonia Immerz (AWI), Sarah Zwicker (AWI) and Fokje Schaafsma (WMR) with the assistance of colleague researchers on board.

The personnel involved in the project:
Sampling was conducted using a SUIT or bottom trawl (BT) with the RVs Helmer Hansen (HH), Heincke (HE) and Polarstern (PS) during four expeditions between 2012 and 2015 (Boetius 2013; Mark 2013; Peeken 2016;
|Study Extent||Offshore regions and fjords of Svalbard were sampled. This includes Billefjorden and Hornsund and Kongsfjorden fjords. In the Eurasian Basin, samples were collected in the Amundsen and Nansen Basin .|
