Fish Density of El Seco, Puerto Rico from 2009-03-31 to 2009-04-02, Project NF-09-01-USVI, 2009, WGS84 (NCEI Accession 0137091)

This data contains densities of fishes detected using mobile fisheries sonar on board NOAA Ship Nancy Foster. The data were acquired in concert with a multibeam bathymetry survey off the coast of Vieques Island, Puerto Rico in 2009. Fish densities are presented by size classes, corresponding to individual lengths inferred from the intensity of acoustic target return, in units of fish per 100 square meters.
