Résumé

Bimonthly trawl catches at seven stations in the Piankatank River, Virginia, for the period July 1970 to May 1971 included 3417 specimens representing 41 species. Numeric and species abundance in the river reflected a seasonal pattern of species specific migrations with peak numerical abundance in September and a decline in marine fishes during winter. The effects of seasonal migrations by marine fishes and their interaction with resident fishes are reflected in diversity indices. Bimodality in diversity was shown with highest diversity occurring at the upper and the lower stations and is attributed to stability of hydrographic factors in these two areas. Seasonal and areal fluctuations in diversity statistics within this small tributary to Chesapeake Bay, and in other East Coast areas, indicate that descriptive community ecology and diversity statistics must be coupled to be able to assess estuarine fish populations for indications of stress conditions.
