  • This dataset included fish counts that were surveyed in the shallow sections (0 – 40 meters) of the oil and gas platforms using Scuba. The oil and gas platforms are located in the Santa Barbara Channel, California, USA. Each of the eleven platforms (GILDA, GINA, HOLLY, IRENE, HERMOSA, HIDALGO, GAIL, GRACE, HARVEST, C, and HENRY) were surveyed multiple times a year from 1995 to 2000. This scuba project was conducted and reported under a cooperative agreement (Agreement 1445-CA09-95-0836) between the U. S. Geological Survey (Biological Resources Division) and the University of California, Santa Barbara. Citation of report: Love, M. S., D. M. Schroeder, and M. M. Nishimoto. 2003.
