Response of Florida Shelf Ecosystems to Climate Change

2001 Fish Count Photography

For each site, a 30 m line was laid out west to east by compass, beginning at the nearshore edge of hardbottom. The diver swam above the transect recording all fish within 1 meter either side and 1 meter above the line (an imaginary 60 cubic meter tunnel). Species were recorded as well as numbers and sizes (by size class: less than 2, 2-5, 5-10, 10-20, 20-30, 30-50 and 50+ cm) as encountered. The diver carried a 1 meter "T"-rod, with the size classes marked off, to aid in transect width and fish length estimation. The transect was not time delimited.
