Abstract:

This dataset contains striped anchovy (Anchoa hepsetus) and sand seatrout (Cynoscion arenarius) growth and condition data collected aboard R/V Point Sur cruise PS16-20 (cruise PTS02) in the northern Gulf of Mexico from 2016-04-08 to 2016-04-10. During a high discharge event from the Mobile Bay plume over April 8-11th, 2016, larval fish samples were collected using a Bedford Institute of Oceanography Net Environmental Sampling System (BIONESS). The BIONESS (0.25 m^2 opening) was fitted with 333-µm and 202-µm mesh nets. Ichthyoplankton samples included in this data set were collected nearshore on the coastal shelf downstream of the Mobile Bay river plume to examine how variable freshwater discharge affects larval fish distributions, growth, and morphometric condition. Within the sampling area, plume water masses were identified by salinity (≤25). The growth and morphometric condition of larval fishes (striped anchovy and sand seatrout) collected from these plume water masses were compared to conspecifics collected from nearby shelf (non-plume; >32 salinity) water masses. The dataset includes the sample collection information (date, gear number, water mass the station was located within, station locations); daily growth, recent growth, and condition data; and raw images of larval striped anchovy and sand seatrout.

Purpose:

Data were collected during the CONCORDE Spring 2016 cruise to examine how variable freshwater discharge can affect larval fish growth and morphometric condition.

The folders "Engraulidae, A. hepsetus" and "Sciaenidae, C. arenarius" includes the raw images (Tiff file) of striped anchovy, A. hepsetus, (Engraulidae) and Sand Seatrout, C. arenarius, (Sciaenidae) respectively. Please note that the image file name is the sample number which can be linked to the morphometric measurements in the spreadsheet.|The contents of the plankton net were fixed in 95% ethanol and stored in 85% ethanol after rinsing with seawater and sieving. A Leica MZ9.5 dissecting microscope was used to identify fish larvae from the BIONESS nets to lowest possible taxonomic level. A Leica MZ16 dissecting microscope was used to assess body lengths of larval striped anchovy (Anchoa hepsetus) and sand seatrout (Cynoscion arenarius). Imaging was done with a QImaging digital camera and Image-Pro Premier 9.1 software (Media Cybernetics, Inc., Rockville, Maryland). A single reader examined all otoliths from both species twice blind (without knowledge of previous readings, dates, or fish sizes). If there was a less than 5% difference in reading, one read was chosen randomly for analysis. Otoliths whose readings differed by more than 5% were removed from any further analyses (Sponaugle et al. 2009). Five linear body dimensions (six for seatrout larvae) that have been shown in other species to vary with larval feeding success, and hence are related to body condition (body depth at the pectoral fin, DPF; body depth at the anus, DA; head length, HL; head depth, HD; eye diameter, ED; and in the case of the seatrouts, lower jaw length, LJL) were used to examine differences in larval fish body condition between plume and shelf (non-plume) water masses. For analysis of body condition, only specimens with the full suite of morphometric measurements were used. The residual of each body measurement (e.g., head depth) was computed from its linear correlation with notochord length to standardize and account for size variation among larvae. To standardize and account for size variation among larvae, the residual of each body measurement (e.g., head depth) was computed from its linear correlation with notochord length.|Bedford Institute of Oceanography Net Environmental Sampling System (BIONESS), 0.25 m^2 opening, fitted with 333-µm and 202-µm mesh nets.
