Examination of mini-BRUVs’ data, for 30 min samples, identified that the vast majority of fish species were detected within 15 min and indicated that a shorter 15 min sampling period would generally be suitable for collecting fish data from rock pools. The baseline data collected on fishes in LHI rock pools demonstrated the uniqueness of LHI assemblages, which were significantly different from those on the NSW coast. This study demonstrates that non-destructive sampling methods can be used in rock pool environments, making these methods suitable for sampling in inter-tidal habitats, especially within marine protected areas.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 65 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
