Summary

This shapefile contains information regarding the abundance of fish observed incidentally during anadromous fish surveys. It also contains some data for mixed anadromous counts, such as redd count data, where the anadromous species responsible for constructing the redd is not known. This data is a component of the CalFish Abundance Database. Linear and point features in the database depict the data collection sites associated with fisheries information that is currently contained in the CalFish Abundance Database. This shapefile is not meant to reflect fish distribution.

Description

The CalFish Abundance Database contains a comprehensive collection of anadromous fisheries abundance information. The "Other Fish" category contains data collected for species other than salmonids, or salmonids that have not been identified as to species. Beginning in 1998, the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the National Marine Fisheries Service, began a cooperative project aimed at collecting, archiving, and entering into standardized electronic formats, the wealth of information generated by fisheries resource management agencies and tribes throughout California. Extensive data are currently available for chinook, coho, steelhead and to a lesser degree other fish species as well. Major data categories include adult abundance population estimates, actual fish and/or carcass counts, counts of fish collected at dams, weirs, or traps, and redd counts. Updates are made to the CalFish web server quarterly. This CalFish Abundance Database shapefile was generated from fully routed 1:100,000 hydrography. In a few cases streams had to be added to the hydrography dataset in order to provide a means to create shapefiles to represent abundance data associated with them. Streams added were digitized at no more than 1:24,000 scale based on stream line images portrayed in 1:24,000 Digital Raster Graphics (DRG). These features generally represent abundance counts resulting from stream surveys. The linear features in this layer typically represent the location for which abundance data records apply. This would be the reach or length of stream surveyed, or the stream sections for which a given population estimate applies. In some cases the actual stream section surveyed was not specified and linear features represent the entire stream. In many cases there are multiple datasets associated with the same length of stream, and so, linear features overlap. Please view the associated datasets for detail regarding specific features. In CalFish these are accessed through the "link" that is visible when performing an identify or query operation. A URL string is provided with each feature in the downloadable data which can also be used to access the underlying datasets. The data that is available via the CalFish website is actually linked directly to the StreamNet website where the database's tabular data is currently stored. Additional information about StreamNet may be downloaded at http://www.streamnet.org . Complete documentation for the StreamNet database may be accessed at http://www.streamnet.org/online-data/archive/exc_982.html .

Data within the CalFish Anadromous Database was obtained from a variety of sources. Some count data may not be suitable for comparison or analysis. A short summary providing details of methodologies used to collect data and/or circumstances that may have affected the accuracy of the individual counts have been included in the dataset. The original reference material should be consulted when a more detailed description is appropriate. Each data record within the database is associated with a reference.

Data quality report - Quantitative attribute accuracy
Measure description
Although every effort was made to accurately represent the locations where data were collected, some references used to compile abundance data contain location descriptions for stream locations that could not be ascertained from current 1:24,000 DRG images. Where counts are associated with non-specific collection sites, and migration barriers are unknown, abundance data is linked to the entire stream. Details about the locations used to depict each shape have been included in the comment area of each dataset.
