During our sampling of the 201 1-[km.sup.2] cells over 23 survey days from April to November 2010, 1211 AFCPs were observed concurrently with DCPs (Table 1), yielding a mean AFCP density of 19 AFCP/[km.sup.2] in open water.
Found in 46% of the 201 sampled cells, AFCPs were much more widely distributed than DCPs, which were found in only 9% of the sampled cells.
Table 1 Distribution of sampling effort and raw abundance of derelict crab pots (DCPs) and actively fished crab pots (AFCPs) found within cells (each 1 [km.sup.2]) sampled in 2010 during a survey of marsh creek, estuarine edge, and adjacent Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) habitats in Bogue, Core, Masonboro, and Topsail sounds and Cape Fear and Newport rivers in North Carolina.
Two-way analyses of variance (ANOVAs) were conducted on data to test whether waterbody or habitat type were significant factors explaining differences in DCP and AFCP density and to test whether interactions between habitat type and waterbody existed.
