This dataset contains gill net data collected for the Sabine Lake bay system in Texas from 1986 to 2008. Collected data also included spatial and temporal information describing the sample location and time, collection gear information, hydrological data (e.g. dissolved oxygen, water temperature, and salinity), weather conditions, species caught, and number of each species [...]
