Abstract : The data presented herewith were collected during the first half of 1963 on ten cruises with the R/V GERDA and nine cruises with the M/V MISS FLETA in Florida Straits and the eastern part of the Gulf of Mexico. The data were obtained for studies of the oceanographic conditions prevailing in Florida Straits and adjacent waters, with particular regard to the kinematics of the water movements and also to the physical environment of the shrimp population inhabiting the region of the Tortugas Shelf. The tracks of the vessels and the positions at which observations were made are shown in charts immediately preceding the list of oceanographic station data relating to each cruise. (Author)
