        abstract:  The purpose of CAGES (Comparative Assessment of Gulf Estuarine Systems) is to compile the fishery independent data from five Gulf States into a database to more easily compare the fisheries across the US Gulf of Mexico coast. The CAGES database is intended for scientific research only. The CAGES program is designed to examine the differences between estuarine ecosystems and investigate why some are more productive than others. The program focuses on estuarine areas important to commercial fisheries and includes data on commercial finfish and invertebrate species, as well as other species commonly captured in trawl sampling. The CAGES Relational Database is a compilation of fishery-independent data contributed by natural resource agencies of the Gulf States (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida). This data set includes data from trawls as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station. These data are subdivided by state, and original data are in Microsoft Office Access (.accdb) format. Data are also provided as matching ASCII (.csv) files with standard metadata in both Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) and International Standard Organization (ISO) format. An accompanying report, NOAATechnicalMemorandumNMFS-SEFSC-647.pdf, provides a study overview, methodology, and results. Data files include CPUE, hydrological, lengths, samples, species, stations, and trawls. Users are advised to review the individual metadata report for each state for specific notes on data collection, data processing details, omissions and issues.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.

        supplementalInformation:  Users are advised to review the individual metadata report for each state for specific notes on data collection, data processing details, omissions and issues. 1. The Mississippi dataset includes data from trawls collected by the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources and the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (MDMR/GCRL), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1973 through 2005. 2. The Alabama data set includes data from trawls collected by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) and Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1981 through 2007. 3. The Florida data set includes trawl and associated hydrographic data collected under the Fisheries-Independent Monitoring (FIM) Program, part of the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC). Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1989 through 2005. 4. The Louisiana data set includes data from trawls collected by the Marine Fisheries Division of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) at each station for the years 1986 through 2007. 5. The Texas dataset includes data from trawls collected by the Coastal Fisheries Division of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), as well as associated hydrographic data. Trawl data were used to calculate CPUE (catch per unit effort) data for 26 target species at each sampling site, measured in number of organisms per hectare. Data presented here show the mean CPUE at each TPWD station for the years 1982 through 2005. Estuaries along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico that were analyzed for nekton abundance: Lower Laguna Madre, Upper Laguna Madre, Corpus Christi Bay, Aransas Bay, San Antonio Bay, East Matagorda Bay, Galveston Bay, Sabine Lake, Lake Calcasien, Vermillion and Cote Blanche Bays, Terrebone and Timbalier Bays, Barataria Bay, Breton and Chandelier Sounds, Lake Borgne, West Mississippi Sound, East Mississippi Sound, Mobile Bay, Perdido Bay, Apalachicola Bay, Suwannee Sound, Cedar Key, Tampa Bay, Charlotte Harbor
