  • Abstract We compared the catch rate and size structure of shads (Dorosoma spp.) collected in floating and sinking experimental gill nets to determine which net type would be more appropriate for the long-term monitoring of these species in Florida lakes. We sampled 3 lakes of varying trophic states. Sinking gill nets generally yielded higher catch rates of shads than did floating gill nets, although catches were low in the mesotrophic lake regardless of net type. Furthermore, sinking nets… CONTINUE READING
