CommentsOur paired bongo nets are fished in a depth-integrated fashion at this site. This means our nets fish for 5 minutes at the surface, 5 minutes in the middle, and 5 minutes at the bottom. The net is not lifted in between these 5-minute events, so I'm not sure what part of the water column the goby was collected from. I do not have easy access to larvae length data at this time.
