Description

While extensive biomass surveys routinely gather information on the abundance of commercial and noncommercial fishes, information from these surveys is often analyzed on a species-by species basis only. A more "holistic" analysis of community data is usually the domain of community ecology. Various approaches have been used to describe communities at different sites, to relate community structure to underlying explanatory factors, and to assess changes in community structure over time.
