Changes in the demersal fish assemblages of British coastal waters during the 20 th century

  title={Changes in the demersal fish assemblages of British coastal waters during the 20 th century},
  author={Stuart I. Rogers and Jim Ellis},
Catches of demersal fish from research vessel surveys in three areas around the British Isles from 1901 to 1907 were compared with survey catches in the same areas from 1989 to 1997. Mesh size and other characteristics of the trawls used suggested that some of these data were comparable, and could be used to describe changes in demersal fish assemblages over the last 80 years. In Start Bay (NW English Channel) and the Irish Sea, species diversity was the same in both periods, although the most… CONTINUE READING
