  • Dataset Abstract
    Depth is measured at 3 random locations within each net at time of set. All other variables (salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen) are measured at the river bank adjacent to each net also at the time of set. Minimum and maximum values for sites were found to be: Salinity(ppt) = SRSMc-S2: 0.3-14.7, SRSMc-S3: 15.6-34.4, SRSMc-S4: 2.4-34; Water temp(degrees C)= SRSMc-S2: 22.2-31.5, SRSMc-S3: 16.6-31.1, SRSMc-S4: 21.1-30.6; DO(mg/l)= SRSMc-S2: 2.55-5.27, SRSMc-S3: 2.08-5.3, SRSMc-S4: 1.25-4.2; Mean depth(cm)= SRSMc-S2: 0.0-24.6, SRSMc-S3: 5.7-41.5, SRSMc-S4: 0.0-21.4

  • Methods
    Sampling Description
    Lift nets (6m2) were set at high tide and nekton collected at low tide in trenches bordering each net. Three nets were set at each site, and physical parameters were taken at each site: water depth, salinity, water temperature and dissolved oxygen. Three permanent plots per site, nets folded into aluminum trenches set in the forest floor and deployed remotely from boardwalks.

    Method Step

    Description
    2 x 3 m2 bottomless lift nets (Rozas 1992, Bottomless lift net for sampling nekton on intertidal marshes. Mar Ecol Prog Ser 89: 287-92.); K-S test for length-frequency dist., RM ANOVA for site differences.
