Rubin, S.P., Hayes, M.C., and Grossman, E.E., 2018, Data collected in 2008-2010 to evaluate juvenile salmon and forage fish use of eelgrass on the Skagit River Delta, Washington State, USA: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/P9YMXJAF.

Summary

Data are abundance and body size (length) of juvenile salmon, forage fish, and other species captured with a lampara net in eelgrass and nearby unvegetated habitat on the Skagit River Delta monthly, April-September, 2008-2010, as well as vegetation status, water depth, temperature, salinity, and clarity for each fish netting event.

Purpose

Data were collected to compare abundance and body size of juvenile salmon and forage fish between eelgrass and nearby unvegetated habitat and across eelgrass meadows that differed in levels of impact from diking and river channelization.
