        abstract:  We collected data on parrotfish abundance, biomass, size structure, and species composition at several sites on the N shore of St. Croix during July and August 2015 and 2016. Surveys were conducted using a method that allowed divers to rapidly survey large areas and quantify habitat assocations of different species. Researchers conducted 20-30 min timed swims towing a float with a GPS receiver, which allowed for the calculation of distance traveled during a swim and therefore the total area sampled. During the timed swim survey, the diver estimated and recorded the size to the nearest cm of all parrotfishes that were at least 10 cm in length that were encountered in a 5-m-wide swath. Because these swims often crossed multiple habitats, the diver recorded the habitat each minute. For each site, the total area of each habitat sampled was then calculated in order to determine habitat- and site-specific densities of each parrotfish species.
        purpose:  These data were compiled to document spatial and temporal patterns of abundance and biomass of parrotfishes in St. Croix, U. S. Virgin Islands
