Methodology

Methods: 

Shrimp are sampled during six periods each year. Each period represents a two month range (e.g. period 1 = January-February; period 2 = March-April, etc.). Wire minnow traps, baited with cat food are placed into the stream during the late afternoon and retrieved the following morning. All shrimp from each trap are enumerated by species and released.
