Summary

This data set includes site characteristics and fish catch rate information for gill nets deployed in Lake Erie. Catches of walleye (Sander vitreus), clupeidae, and moronidae are tallied by mesh size and net type at each deployment site. More detailed information about net construction and methods is provided in the accompanying Fisheries Research article.
