Information was collected during the period August 1958-February
1960, concerning the distribution of fishes in the
shore zone in relation to the various environments found at
sixteen sites within the Delaware River estuary and adjacent
areas of the Atlantic coast. Over 54,000 fishes comprising 66
species were collected in the shore zone. Data were occasionally
collected concerning the presence of these 66 species in the
deeper waters of the estuary as well as the occurrence of 72
species not caught in the beach zone area. Measurements of salinity,
temperature, oxygen saturation, and turbidity of the water
were taken at the time of fish collection. Observations of tide
condition, plant associations, bottom type and associated animals
were also made at the collection sites.
