Item Identification

Title: Caernarvon_2001_tblSamples.csv
Short Name: Sample Data
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Spartina spp. indicates approximately a 50/50 mix of S. patens and S. alterniflora. Biomass for nekton is wet weight in grams (weighed to 0.01 grams) by taxon and sample. No plant weight/biomass data for Caernarvon 2001

Table contains sample information including project name, sample sites, date, gear type, environmental, habitat, and vegetation data. A value of '-999' in any column indicates parameter was not measured or information is not available for given record. Empty column also indicates parameter was not measured.

Project. Total Biomass for penaeid shrimp is total weight by taxon*sample in grams. Length frequency distributions include up to 22 organisms at a given station, the first 20 measured at random from all available specimens. The 21st and 22nd measurements were min and max sizes after the subsample was obtained.
