Summary
Abstract: Abundance and biomass of fish species collected during the day from February to August 1979 off the coast of the southeastern United States (Cape Fear, NC to Cape Canaveral, FL). The trawl consists of specifically designed nets attached to a V-shaped, rigid diving vane, which maintains the trawl at depth for extended periods of time at towing speeds up to 5 knots. The IKMT has a 1.8 m x 1.8 m mouth opening, with a 1.050 mm mesh cod end.

Purpose: For thirty years, the Marine Resources Research Institute (MRRI) at the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), through the Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment and Prediction (MARMAP) program, has conducted fisheries-independent research on groundfish, reef fish, ichthyoplankton, and coastal pelagic fishes within the region between Cape Lookout, North Carolina, and Ft Pierce, ...
