This dataset contains fish assemblage data (species abundance) collected using stereo BRUVs deployed across three reef lines in Shoalwater and Marmion. These data were collected to investigate the differences in fish assemblages at three depths off Perth, as well as the difference between Marmion and Shoalwater reefs. This research is being analysed and written as part of a Masters project by Lydia Bach from Glasgow University.
