Abstract:

Sargassum-associated juvenile fishes were collected in 2011 in the northern Gulf of Mexico with a plankton purse seine and neuston net. Grey Triggerfish (Balistes capriscus) juveniles were removed from the samples, then measured, weighted and aged (using dorsal spine) for a manuscript and for inclusion in a Grey Triggerfish SouthEast Data, Assessment, and Review (SEDAR). Data were collected on two different cruises in the northern Gulf of Mexico. The first cruise was the AL-11-08-Sarg-06 onboard the R/V Alabama Discovery on 2011-08-18 and the second cruise was the WI-11-09-Sarg-10 onboard the R/V E.O. Wilson on 2011-09-23. The chief scientist for both cruises was Sarah Muffelman.

Purpose:

Time-sensitive data were collected during the peak of the Sargassum occurrence in the northern Gulf of Mexico to address the following objectives: 1) determine the areal extent and distribution of Sargassum in the northcentral Gulf of Mexico during the 2011 summer season; 2) determine the relationship between Sargassum patch size and species richness and density for planktonic and pelagic fish and invertebrates at multiple life stages; and 3) quantify via stable isotopes and diet analysis trophic linkages within the Sargassum food web.
