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 Mississippi 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 Mississippi Department of Marine Resources and the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (MDMR/GCRL), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1973 through 2005. 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 Mississippi 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 - Friday, 8am - 5pm, Central Standard Time gmd:role: gmd:CI_RoleCode: pointOfContact gmd:resourceMaintenance: gmd:MD_MaintenanceInformation: gmd:maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: gmd:MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: unknown gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: CoRIS_Metadata gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: NCEI Geoportal Filter gmd:date: inapplicable gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: comparative assessment of gulf estuarine systems gmd:keyword: CAGES gmd:keyword: Mississippi Department of Marine Resources gmd:keyword: University of Southern Mississippi gmd:keyword: Gulf Coast Research Laboratory gmd:keyword: estuary gmd:keyword: coastal bay gmd:keyword: distribution gmd:keyword: abundance gmd:keyword: occurrence gmd:keyword: fisheries gmd:keyword: fishery independent data gmd:keyword: CPUE gmd:keyword: catch per unit effort gmd:keyword: total weight gmd:keyword: trawl gmd:keyword: finfish gmd:keyword: invertebrate gmd:keyword: nekton gmd:keyword: vertebrate gmd:keyword: crustacean gmd:keyword: salinity gmd:keyword: temperature gmd:keyword: dissolved oxygen gmd:keyword: hydrological gmd:keyword: hydrographic gmd:keyword: ANNELIDA gmd:keyword: ARTHROPODA gmd:keyword: CHAETOGNATHA gmd:keyword: CHORDATA gmd:keyword: CNIDARIA gmd:keyword: CTENOPHORA gmd:keyword: ECHINODERMATA gmd:keyword: ECTOPROCTA gmd:keyword: HEMICHORDATA gmd:keyword: MOLLUSCA gmd:keyword: NEMERTEA gmd:keyword: PLATYHELMINTHES gmd:keyword: PORIFERA gmd:type: gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: None gmd:date: unknown gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: Gulf of Mexico gmd:keyword: Gulf Coast gmd:keyword: Mississippi gmd:keyword: Biloxi Bay gmd:keyword: St. Louis Bay gmd:keyword: Mississippi Sound gmd:keyword: Bayou Bernard gmd:keyword: Pascagoula gmd:type: gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode: place gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: None gmd:date: unknown gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: OCEAN BASIN > Atlantic Ocean > Gulf of Mexico > Mississippi gmd:keyword: COUNTRY/TERRITORY > United States of America > Mississippi gmd:type: gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode: place gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: CoRIS Place Thesaurus gmd:date: unknown gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: Numeric Data Sets > Biology gmd:type: gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: CoRIS Discovery Thesaurus gmd:date: missing gmd:descriptiveKeywords: gmd:MD_Keywords: gmd:keyword: EARTH SCIENCE > Oceans > Marine Biology > Marine Invertebrates gmd:keyword: EARTH SCIENCE > Oceans > Salinity/Density > Salinity gmd:keyword: EARTH SCIENCE > Oceans > Ocean Chemistry > Oxygen gmd:keyword: EARTH SCIENCE > Oceans > Marine Biology > Fish gmd:keyword: EARTH SCIENCE > Oceans > Ocean Temperature > Water Temperature gmd:type: gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme gmd:thesaurusName: gmd:CI_Citation: gmd:title: CoRIS Theme Thesaurus gmd:date: missing gmd:resourceConstraints: gmd:MD_LegalConstraints: gmd:accessConstraints: gmd:MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions gmd:useConstraints: gmd:MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions gmd:otherConstraints: Access Constraints: None Use Constraints: None Distribution Liability: NOAA and NODC make no warranty, expressed or implied, regarding these data, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.

MDMR/GCRL selected these few sites as being representative of their areasĀ’ nekton based on past surveys. The standard trawl used for fisheries-independent sampling was a 4.9-m (16-ft) flat otter trawl with 3.8-cm (1.5-in) stretched mesh webbing of nylon multifilament twine. Environmental data were collected at each site prior to the trawl tow. Surface and bottom water temperature and salinity were recorded along with water depth before each tow. The MDMR/GCRL trawl also was fitted with a 6-mm (1/4-in) bar mesh liner. The trawl was spread by 0.9 m long by 0.5 m tall (36 x 18 in) plank board trawl doors protected along their rims by iron plate. Tow line length was determined by a 6:1 scope with water depth. Trawls were towed for 10 minutes at about 3.7 kph (2.4 mph) from a 6.4-m (21-ft) research boat. Abundance data were not collected for the following species until 1985: Anchoa mitchilli, Bairdiella chrysoura, Lagodon rhomboides, Paralichthys lethostigma, Pogonias cromis, Sciaenops ocellatus, and Symphurus plagiusa. All specimens caught in a trawl were identified, counted, and recorded. Standard length (mm) and weights (g) of up to 50 specimens of each species, including the minimum and maximum sizes, were measured and recorded for commercial species only. For non-commercial species only minimum and maximum standard lengths were recorded (Anderson 2009). 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 Mississippi was calculated to be 41.56. 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.
