Abstract We analyzed experimental gill-net catches of spotted seatrout Cynoscion nebulosus at 28 stations in various estuarine habitats over 3 years (1988–1990). Cluster analysis indicated that the 28 stations reduced to three “natural” groupings representing salinity zones that correspond to upper (oligohaline, 0–9‰), intermediate (mesohaline, 10–14‰), and lower (polyhaline, 15–30‰) estuarine zones. Principal components analysis applied to log-transformed gill-net catches yielded a two-factor… CONTINUE READING
