Summary:
Standardized protocols were used to survey fish and habitat in nearshore areas of the lower Great Lakes since 1988. The objectives were to evaluate the status of the fish communities in Great Lakes' Areas of Concern (regions with degraded water quality and habitat), and to evaluate the productive capacity of nearshore habitat at natural and altered shorelines.

Abstract:

Standardized protocols were used to survey fish and habitat in nearshore areas of the lower Great Lakes since 1988. The objectives were to evaluate the status of the fish communities in Great Lakes' Areas of Concern (regions with degraded water quality and habitat), and to evaluate the productive capacity of nearshore habitat at natural and altered shorelines. This report provides details of the fish and habitat survey protocol that was used. Fish were captured by boat electrofishing at 100 m line transects, and in recent years, by point sampling. In both cases, survey locations were stratified and replicated in habitats with different substrate, cover and shoreline characteristics. Line and point sample protocols provided data at different spatial scales, but both were conducted in a consistent manner to allow the analysis of temporal and spatial trends in fish catches and their associated habitats. Fish and habitat information were recorded on field sheets, and later transferred to a computer database. The nearshore database has been used for both research and management purposes, demonstrating the advantages of using standard survey protocols in the Great Lakes.
