Methods

All abundance and biomass estimates are based on 50m belt transects. WCS use a narrow transect (2m wide) for small fish (<10cm) and 5m wide for larger (>10cm) fish. all abundance and biomass standardised to to XX per 250m2. Use 50x5m transects for all fish sizes so don?t need to standardise. Data is the total abundance and total biomass by each species. but there is a separate column for each transect. Unit of abundance = CountPer250m2, Unit of biomass = KiloPer250m2
