Because individual age cohorts cannot be distinguished for fish age 3 and older from length-frequency distribution, CPUE was calculated from the fyke net
data for the age-3+ cohort as a whole.
Perch [greater than or equal to]2 yr old were sampled on four occasions in 1994 (June, July, August, and September) with one fyke net
and four plastic traps (mesh sizes 10 and 20 mm) per station as for the YOY perch trappings.
However, the fyke net
sets may give a more representative sample because they are passive and do not require a behavioral response to work.
For hydrographic data collected at fyke net
sites, depth-averaged values of temperature or salinity were used.
Catch is designated as catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE), or the number of fish caught per fyke net
per 24 h of fishing effort (fish*net-1*24 h-1).
Catch-per-unit-effort and mark-recapture data collected by fyke net
during the summers of 1985-93 near Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, were analyzed to determine whether two oil industry causeways constructed perpendicular to the Beaufort Sea coast, West Dock and the Endicott Causeway, affected the feeding and migratory patterns of least cisco (Coregonus sardinella) and arctic cisco (C.
The bulk of the information is based on fyke net
and gill net sampling at the shoreline.
Fish were collected at four fyke net
stations in the Sagavanirktok Delta (Fig.

Our study took advantage of proximity to a shallow-water geophysical survey area where daily summertime fish sampling at four fyke net
locations has been done for 28 years (McCain and Raborn, 2015).
For the fyke net
, seine, and suction sample, two-way, fixed factor analysis of variance (ANOVA) data were used to evaluate the effects of habitat type and season on response variables, including overall abundance, biomass, and species richness.
