  • Dataset Abstract
    This study examines temporal and spatial dynamics in the fish community of the oligohaline to mesohaline reaches of ecotonal creeks along the southwest region of Everglades National Park. Sampling is conducted at 15 mangrove creeks in two drainages: Rookery Branch and the North, Roberts, and Watson rivers. The sampling in Rookery Branch expands over a 12-km stretch of ecotonal mangrove creeks upstream of Tarpon Bay. Minnow traps are used to target small-bodied forage fish. Sampling started in the wet season of 2004, and has been conducted three times per year at these approximate times: November (wet season); February (transition); and April (dry season). In the Rookery Branch region, fish abundance varies markedly yearly and seasonally. Catches peak in the drier months, reflecting a pulse of movement by freshwater taxa into creeks as marshes upstream dry. The timing of this pulse is closely tied to the pattern of water recession in upstream marshes, and has important ramifications for wading bird prey availability.

    Sampling Description
    Sampling is conducted at 15 mangrove creeks in two drainages: Rookery Branch and the North, Roberts, and Watson rivers. Minnow traps are used to target small-bodied forage fish. We sample the upper 100-m reaches of each creek with 3-mm mesh metal minnow traps. The minnow trap is an entrapment gear that typically targets small fishes and invertebrates, as well as juveniles of larger species. Minnow traps have two conical-shapled funnel openings (2.54 cm diameter) that inhibit animals from escaping once they enter the trap. Minnow traps are most efficient in capturing bottom-dwelling fishes and invertebrates, although it has been our experience that top-dwelling fish such as eastern mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki) are caught commonly in traps set at the surface of the water column. Thus, we use paired traps, one set on the bottom and the other suspended at the top of the water column, attached to mangrove prop roots. We deploy five pairs of traps per creek randomly along the uppermost 100-m stretch in each creek. The traps are deployed unbaited overnight along the fringing mangroves for an approximately 24-h catch effort. Fishes and decapods captured from minnow traps are preserved in 10 percent buffered formalin and returned to the laboratory for processing. According to the standardized animal care guidelines, we euthanize all collected fish with an overdose of MS-222 prior to fixation. Specimens are retained in formalin for approximately one week to allow proper fixation, and then are preserved in 70 percent ethanol before processing. During each sampling event, we use a YS 85 unit to record physico-chemical parameters (water temperature, specific conductance/salinity, and dissolved oxygen) when retrieving minnow traps.

    Quality Control
    All data from sampling, catch, and processing datasheets are entered in spreadsheet format using Microsoft Excel. Separate files are created and managed for two sampling methods (electrofishing and minnow trapping). Since analyses are multiyear, all years of data are combined into a single file, and as new data is gathered, it is added to a master datafile containing all previous years of data. Post data entry, data are verified and validated by a different technician from the technician that entered the data. Then, the data files are cleaned and formatted for statistical analyses.
