This data set provides a table of length, weight, sex, and estimated fecundity of Silver Chub Macrhybopsis storeriana in western Lake Erie from 1979 through 1987. These data are potentially useful to those studying recovery and restoration of Silver Chub in Lake Erie. These data were collected as part of routine trawl surveys in western Lake Erie. Other data associated with these data can be found in the Great Lakes Research Vessel Operations 1958-2018. (ver. 3.0, April 2019). A drawn map, originally packaged alongside the hard copy data sheets, is included in this data release. This map guides users in identifying specific locations of capture. Due to the legacy nature of these data, location data is estimated based on the points on this map and knowledge of Lake Erie geography.
