Fisheries-Independent Biological and Environmental Trawl Data from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (1982-2005) as Part of the Comparative Assessment of Gulf Estuarine Systems (CAGES) Database (NODC Accession 0115183)

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The CAGES program (Comparative Assessment of Gulf Estuarine Systems) is designed to examine the differences between estuarine ecosystems and investigate why some are more productive than others. The program focuses on estuarine areas important to commercial fisheries and includes data on commercial finfish and invertebrate species, as well as other species commonly captured in trawl sampling. This Texas dataset is a subset of the CAGES Relational Database which is a compilation of fishery-independent data contributed by natural resource agencies of the Gulf States (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida). This data set includes data from trawls collected by the Coastal Fisheries Division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) data for 26 target species at each sampling site, measured in number of organisms per hectare. Data presented here show the mean CPUE at each TPWD station for the years 1982 through 2005.
