This dataset contains fish data collected using fish traps and demersal longlines and includes biological data, for some species, such as length and weights. Additional data include the dates, set locations (latitudes, longitudes), depth, water temperature, gear deployed and bait used. These data were collected during the R/V Apalachee cruise AP-1515 from September 29 to September 30, 2015. The objectives of this project included to describe and examine differences in species assemblage and relative abundance of demersal fishes in the Gulf of Mexico.
