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.
