Purpose
Characterize the fish and decapod assemblages (species composition, density)
associated with natural tidal creeks, mosquito-control ditches and stormwater
ditches
Information to be Derived
Fish abundance, abundance of decapod crustaceans, water quality, nursery
function of backwater habitats
Summary
For 3 years we sampled fish and decapod crustaceans quarterly in replicate
natural tidal creeks, mosquito-control ditches and stormwater ditches in each
of 3 mangrove wetlands in the bay. We routinely measured fish and crustacean
density, water depth, discharge, salinity, pH, shoreline vegetation, &
dissolved oxygen. In a subset of sites we additionally measured discharge,
substrate depth, tidal amplitude, and connectivity of floodplain ponds to tidal
exchange.
Notes
Tampa Bay Project Task 3, wetlands characterization.
Statements above summarize a 3-yr project.  Used shop to fabricate 36 aluminum
trenches each 5 m long X 10 cm wide, 10 cm deep.  Future deliverables
associated with this project include more products and two graduate degrees.
