Item Identification

Title: Sportsmans Road/Gangs Bayou 1995
Short Name: Sportsmans Road 1995
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 1995
Revision Date: 1997
Publication Date: 2018
Abstract:

Measured fine-scale distributions of nekton on the vegetated marsh surface using drop samplers and utilized these patterns to estimate population size. Natant decapod crustaceans were most abundant in the marsh, while densities of juvenile brown shrimp, white shrimp, and blue crabs were highest 1-m from the marsh edge interface, declining rapidly towards open water. Developed regression models to describe fine-scale density patterns and used this information to estimate the population of natant decapods in a highly fragmented marsh in the Galveston Bay system.

Purpose:

Identify and describe the relationship between fishery productivity and the coastal environment.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

Data were entered into spreadsheets and checked against the raw data sheet to avoid entry errors

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Each sample was assigned a unique identification code. Field collected samples were tagged redundantly (e.g. one label inside of the collection vessel and a matching label attached to the outside of the vessel). The identifier and its associated information (e.g. date, location, habitat) was recorded on field data sheets. Once a sample arrived at the laboratory, the label remained with the sample throughout the various stages of sample processing. After data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or similar database file, the information was printed out and compared against the field data sheets by two biologists. Corrections were made at this time and saved. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 282102
Description:

After sample collection, field data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or database file (DBF) using database manager software. A text file was created to describe these data and associated variables. Entered data were checked against the field sheets by two biologists to minimize entry errors. Samples were processed in the laboratory, sorted, specimens identified and measured, and information was entered into an Excel spreadsheet or DBF file. Files were printed out and compared against original data sheets by two biologists for data entry errors. Corrections were made at this time, the electronic file was saved, and a back-up copy made. Hard copies of the QCd files were printed and stored in the project folder along with the original field and laboratory data sheets. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors. Verified data files were then saved electronically on the Galveston Laboratory server and backed-up as needed.
