Methods

Demersal fishes from Guanabara Bay were collected in two research periods: (i) seven points sampled fortnightly (two hauls per month during 30 minutes) from July 2005 to June 2007 and; (ii) only two points sampled monthly (three hauls per month) from July 2013 to June 2015. Please note the distinct sampling effort between the 2 sampling periods. Fish sampled in 7 points in 3 years (July 2005 to June 2007) (2 hauls per month); 2 of these points were also sampled for another 3 years (3 hauls per month)(July 2013 to June 2015)
