The Stranding Network Hokkaido (SNH) has collected cetacean stranding information since 2007 along the coast of Hokkaido, Japan, with the collaboration of the Hokkaido University, Tokyo University of Agriculture, Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, and with assistance from the National Museum of Natural History, and the Institute of Cetacean Research, Japan. This data set includes at least 23 cetacean species.
The data in this sampling event 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 990 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
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.

The Stranding Network Hokkaido (SNH) announced to send the stranding information to the public including governmental officers, coast managers, fishers, beachcomber. Once someone reports the information of cetacean stranding, SNH asked to send photos and collect necessary information for confirming the stranding location and species. In more than half of the case, SNH dispatch researchers to collect more information, photo and biological samples.
|Study Extent||Stranding data is collected directly from our observer or from the communication with the local observer.|
|Quality Control||Species identification is double-checked by the DNA analysis conducted in the Institute of Cetacean Research, Japan.|
Method step description:
- Stranding data is collected directly from our observer or from the communication with the local observer.
