It's the final day! Let's go!
Today's data was from NOAA regarding Eastern Bering Sea Crab Distribution. The data was very interesting and I enjoyed digging into it and focusing on certain areas. Here is what I came up with!
I took some time trying to understand the data properly and figure out what the granularity was. I also realised later on that there was a data dictionary, so some of the ideas I came up with didn't work out.
I decided to focus on the red king crab, as I noticed that the catch per unit effort had decreased by almost 90% since the peak in 1978. I also explored how temperature may affect populations of red king crabs, as well as acidity levels of the water. I also added in some supplementary data about red king crab prices over time.
Longform and dark background again for this viz! I decided to go for a bright green to make it stand out on the background.
I managed to find some data about how temperature and pH levels can affect red king crabs almost at the end of the day, which I added at the bottom of the viz. I would have loved to explore this more, as well as look into carbon dioxide emissions and temperature data about the Bering sea.
Overall, the data was super interesting and I would love to explore it more in the future to see what else I can find!
