Gill net survey of fishes of Oneida Lake, New York, 1957 to present
Rudstam, Lars G.; Jackson, James R.
This data package contains tables summarizing data collected during standardized gill net sampling conducted since 1957 and is part of the collection "Cornell Oneida Lake Data". The Cornell Biological Field Station (CBFS) serves as a primary field site for aquatic research at Cornell University (more information can be found at http://cbfs.dnr.cornell.edu/index.html) and is part of the Department of Natural Resources, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The centerpiece of the station's research program is a 60-year database on the food web of Oneida Lake, New York, that has been collected with support from the Cornell University Brown Endowment and from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The data are collected by personnel from the Cornell Biological Field Station and include limnology, benthos, zooplankton, phytoplankton, and fish survey data, primarily from Oneida Lake and spanning 1957 to present. The three primary tables presented here summarize abundances of different fish species for each sample date and by year, and yearly totals by age class for yellow perch, walleye, white perch, and smallmouth bass. Auxiliary tables contain latitudes and longitudes of standard sampling sites and explanations of species names used in the primary tables.
