This paper provides basic information on fish and crustacean fauna in the southern part of the Boso Peninsula, Japan. The Boso peninsula is located at the northernmost point of where the warm current (Kuroshio) reaches and is considered to have highly endemic fish fauna. In total, 38 families, 72 species, and 3,235 individuals were collected from the 27 river estuaries. Further, Sicyopterus japonicus and Microphis brachyurus, which appear in estuaries that are influenced by the Kuroshio, were confirmed. However, these species were confirmed in few of the rivers studied, highlighting the importance of habitat conservation.
|Title||Database of fish and crustacean fauna sampled in river estuaries in southern part of the Boso Peninsula, Japan|
|Funding||This work was supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number JP19H02250.|
|Study Area Description||The Boso peninsula is located at the northernmost point of where the warm current (Kuroshio) reaches and is considered to have highly endemic fish fauna.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Habitats in half tide and spring tide belonging to one reach section (approximately 10 times the width of the river mouth) were selected as investigation sites. The fishes were collected by hand nets and throwing nets at each habitat (rapid, riffle, run, and pool).
|Study Extent||The surveys were carried out from August 20 to October 3, 2020 in river estuarine environments, which were belonged to the Boso Peninsula, Japan.|
Method step description:
- Sampling locality and date were recorded. Specimens were given IDs, photographed, fin-clipped, and roughly classified on site. Specimens were shipped back to the lab for correct species identification.
