Data Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:

The raw data is available through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Division of Fish and Wildlife by contacting Linda M. Barry, Assistant Biologist at the Marine Fisheries Administration Nacote Creek Research Station (telephone: 1-609-748-2020; email:

The NJDEP, like most state and federal agencies, requires researchers to formally request and sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) before they can receive any data collected by the state. The MOU establishes a framework of how the data will be analyzed and used given all the particulars of fisheries independent monitoring programs.


The field work portion of the project was supported by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Division of Fish and Wildlife. The field work study design and data collection was conducted by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Division of Fish and Wildlife.
