        abstract:  This dataset contains records of Gulf of Mexico (GOM) blue crab (Callinectes sapidus), white shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus), brown shrimp (Farfantepenaeus aztecus), and fishes which can be used to quantify their population abundances and distributions. The data set contains existing data as a baseline and supplemental data from continued sampling. It contains records of early life stage blue crab, white shrimp, brown shrimp, and fishes (measurements and counts) from beach seine and trawl samples across the north GOM in the central Gulf States that were collected using standardized sampling methods. Data also include habitat assessments such as descriptions, georeferencing information, and abiotic factors (DO, salinity, temperature).
        purpose:  The purpose of the dataset is to a. Assess changes in blue crab and white and brown shrimp population distribution and abundance due to OCS activities and potential direct exposure to oil and dispersants (i.e. changes in population density in various life stages, immediate population or species decline due to mortality, resource limitations, increased competition, physiological changes [sterility, growth rate changes], toxins in tissues, etc.) by analyzing baseline and monitoring data. Additionally, this dataset can be used to b. Assess changes in larval, post-larval and early life stage community assemblages in coastal habitat that may offer insight into reduction of crab and shrimp populations (predator/prey interactions, changes in geographic range, resource limitations, etc.).
