Summary:
A new type of portable drop net was developed and used to quantitatively harvest fishes from sample areas in shallow estauaries. The technique is shown to be suitable for sedentary benthic and vegetation-inhabiting fishes, including eels, gobies, gerreids, syngathids, and juvenile pinfish, sciaenids, and flat fishes. The technique and preliminary results are evaluated and compared with reports in the literature describing techniques to estimate fish biomass.
