Distribution and abundance of fishes in native and non-native macrophytes in Old Woman Creek estuary

Objectives:  1) To assess fish use of native (e.g., cattails, Typha latifolia) and invasive (Phragmites australis) macrophytes in the Old Woman Creek (OWC) coastal wetland. This assessment will consider both species composition and abundance, and will focus on sportfish forage species (e.g., Lepomis spp., gizzard shad). 2) To compare fish use of Phragmites in sprayed (with herbicide) and unsprayed areas of the estuary.
