Abstract
This data set includes the biological and environmental data for all of the species collected during the Pisces cruises from Dec. 2010 - September 2011. The main gear type used was a Polytron rope trawl. Four trawls were conducted at each station sampled to capture diel vertical migration information; one deep and one shallow during daylight hours between 9am-2:30pm CDT, and one deep one shallow between 9pm-2:30am CDT. A table of the taxonomic hierarchy used in the nekton database will be included with references to those scientific names recently updated which are not yet reflected by the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (www.itis.gov).
Purpose
Inventory of biological data for Pisces for use in DEEPEND publications.
