The program focuses on estuarine areas important to commercial fisheries and includes data on commercial finfish and invertebrate species, as well as other species commonly captured in trawl sampling. This Alabama dataset is a subset of the CAGES Relational Database which is a compilation of fishery-independent data contributed by natural resource agencies of the Gulf States (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida). This data set includes data from trawls collected by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) and Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1981 through 2007. gmd:purpose: The purpose of CAGES is to compile the fishery independent data from five Gulf States into a database to more easily compare the fisheries across the US Gulf of Mexico coast. This dataset includes data collected from Alabama only. The CAGES database is intended for scientific research only. gmd:status: gmd:MD_ProgressCode: completed gmd:pointOfContact: gmd:CI_ResponsibleParty: gmd:individualName: Dr. Harmon Brown gmd:organisationName: NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, Galveston Laboratory gmd:contactInfo: gmd:CI_Contact: gmd:phone: gmd:CI_Telephone: gmd:voice: 409-766-3500 gmd:address: gmd:CI_Address: gmd:deliveryPoint: Galveston Laboratory, 4700 Avenue U gmd:city: Galveston gmd:administrativeArea: TX gmd:postalCode: 77551 gmd:country: USA gmd:hoursOfService: Monday -

Monthly sampling for all penaeid shrimp, Callinectes crabs, and finfish species started in October 1980. A 4.9-m (16-ft) flat otter trawl with 3.8-cm (1.5-in) stretched mesh webbing, similar to trawls used by Mississippi and Louisiana, was used to sample demersal nekton. Trawl tows were 10 min in duration at about 3.7 kph (2.4 mph). Salinity and temperature values were collected and recorded from surface and bottom waters at each site. Depth was recorded in meters. Site location data were recorded using a differential GPS (ADCNR 2010). Standard lengths (mm) were recorded for up to 50 specimens of each fish species. Total length (mm) for shrimp and carapace width (mm) for crabs were recorded. Beginning in 1990, all organisms were enumerated and weighed according to SEAMAP procedures (Stuntz et al. 1983). From 1998 through October 2000, the number of sites sampled expanded. Trawl sampling was not conducted in December, 1998; January, June, July, and October, 1999; and December, 2000. Sampling was attempted as early in a month as possible. Sample sites were fixed locations in and near Biloxi Bay and Perdido Bay. These data encompass the years 1981-2007. gmd:processStep: gmd:LI_ProcessStep: gmd:description: Catch data in trawls were converted to numbers caught per hectare (#/ha) using the tow times and calculated conversion factors. The conversion factor was calculated based on an assumed 80% spread of the width of the trawl webbing along the headrope (defined here as the headrope length) and the estimated distance towed in one minute calculated from reported tow times. The conversion factor is equal to the time needed (in minutes) for the trawl to cover one hectare. To calculate the CPUE the following formula was used: Conversion factor / Tow duration (min) X Number caught = #/ha. The conversion factor for Alabama was calculated to be 46.84. gmd:metadataMaintenance: gmd:MD_MaintenanceInformation: gmd:maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: unknown gmd:maintenanceNote: This metadata was automatically generated from the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadatastandard version FGDC-STD-001-1998 using the June 2011 version of the FGDC CSDGM to ISO 19115-2 transform.
