Our investigation of seagrass edge effects on mesopredators and larger predators took place in Back Sound, North Carolina (34 degrees 40 minutes North, 76 degrees 34 minutes West). Predation-driven mortality (loss rates of tethered individuals) of blue crabs and pinfish were monitored within a 5,600 m2 seagrass meadow at Jack's Island along the southern rim of Back Sound. These predation measurements were collected during June-July, 2015, in connection with the global-scale Zostera Experimental Network study. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
