Abstract

Biometric and reproductive data of Kiwa tyleri are recorded in five common separated value (CSV) files and described in associated metadata submission CSV files. The data results from analysis of high-definition video imagery and specimens of Kiwa tyleri which were collected from the East Scotia Ridge during six biological sampling dives. Three biological sampling dives to collect specimens were conducted at the northern E2 vent field between 20th and 25th January 2010. A further three biological sampling dives to collect specimens and record HD video imagery were conducted at the southern E9 vent field between 30th January and 2nd February 2010. The dives were undertaken during the RRS James Cook research cruise JC042 (7th January - 24th February 2010) using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Isis. The Isis ROV was equipped with a high-definition video camera and a suction sampler. Discrete spatial samples were targeted to investigate the fine-scale spatial variation in reproductive biology. The dataset was produced by Leigh Marsh, Jon Copley, Paul Tyler and Sven Thatje from the University of Southampton.
