Abstract:

These data represent stable isotope values (13C/15N) of eight species of meso- and bathypelagic nekton collected in the northern Gulf of Mexico during spring (22-March to 11-April), summer (23-June to 13-July), and fall (8-September to 27-September) of 2011. The species examined in this study include: Anoplogaster cornuta, Chauliodus sloani, Coccorella atlantica, Gigantura chuni, Gigantura indica, Omosudis lowii, Photostomias guernei, and Stomias affinis. Isotope values are derived from white muscle tissue dissected from 212 individual fish that were collected using large mid-water trawls towed from the surface to depths of either 700 or 1400 m. The samples were collected as part of an ongoing effort to describe the trophic ecology of major functional groups within deep-pelagic environments of the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Purpose:

This data set and the samples included were collected as part of an ongoing effort to describe the trophic ecology of major functional groups within deep-pelagic environments of the northern Gulf of Mexico. This data set will be used for the creation of a peer-reviewed manuscript.
