This data set contains count, measurement, and weight information, when available, for Penaeid shrimp species. This data set also contains environmental, habitat, and vegetation data. The data was used to evaluate the use of the marsh surface by aquatic fauna on flood tides. Differences in animal densities between the marsh surface and non-vegetated marsh edge were compared and evaluated.
