North Coast: Baseline Characterization of Estuarine Ecosystems:Fish Biodiversity:2014 to 2016

Frank Shaughnessy / Humboldt State University

Goals of this baseline study were to describe biodiversity and target species (abundance, size) in two estuaries from the northern bioregion and two from the southern bioregion of the North Coast MPA Region. Macrophytes, invertebrates and fish were enumerated from two sites within each estuary on June 2014, January 2015, June 2015, January 2016 and June 2016.

This Package contains a file of counts by fish species for each survey effort, as well as as ordination files comparing fish communities among sites, and among summers.
