2016 SEAMAP Reef Fish Survey (PC1601, ME70)

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

Objectives of the 2016 SEAMAP Reef Fish Survey were to assess relative abundance of reef fish species on continental shelf-edge banks of the Gulf of Mexico, estimate length-frequency distributions of sampled species, collect otoliths from fish for age/growth analysis, collect gonads from select species to support reproductive studies, collect conductivity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, fluorescence, and transmissivity data profiles of the water column at each sample site, and collect acoustic echosounder data with Simrad ME70 echosounder at selected sites.
