Dataset

Description

Temperate reef fish assemblage structure and mean lengths were sampled at five shallow reef locations throughout King George Sound (KGS), Albany. Sampling was restricted to two depth zones ‘shallow’ and ’deep’ ranging from 3 - 8m and included three coastal and two island locations. Data was collected by non-destructive diver operated video (DOV) methods This dataset contains the length and relative abundance data from stereo-DOVs.
