Summary

To provide a link to NOAA NMFS issued permits for protected species summarized by HUC 8 geographic units. If you open the attributes of a Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) feature in this dataset the URL found in the LINK field will take you to a page that lists all of the permits that have been issued and completed for the HUC 8 unit. The URL found in the LINK_Active field will take you to a page that lists all of the permits that have been issued and are active for the HUC 8 unit. These NOAA Authorizations and Permits for Protected Species are required for activities such as scientific research, enchancement projects, and incidental take. Since many anadromous fish are protected the permit information presented by this system can provide really useful information about anadromous fish research, and monitoring that is occurring in the area of interest.

Description

This GIS dataset offers links to the online application system for Authorizations and Permits for Protected Speices (APPS) hosted by NOAA NMFS. This system covers NOAA Fisheries permits and authorizations for federally protected species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). For more information on the APPS system visit https://apps.nmfs.noaa.gov/index.cfm The feature attributes in this dataset contain two link fields that return query results from the NOAA APPS database site for the watershed of interest. The first is simply named LINK and the information returned by the query results linked from this field represents the records for Approved Reports from the database. The Approved Reports records represent permit information for work that has been completed in the watershed. The second link field is named LINK_Active and the information returned by the query results linked from this field represents the records for approved applications for Active Permits from the database. The Active Permits records represent permit information for work that is currently occurring in the watershed of interest. Visit https://apps.nmfs.noaa.gov/search/search.cfm to view the NOAA APPS database search form and to review the full variety of parameters that can be used to refine the search of NOAA authorizations and permits for protected species. Permits enable the public to engage in legitimate activities that would otherwise be prohibited by law. Permit programs ensure that such activities are carried out in a manner that safeguards the animals and the environment that are the subject of the activities, or that might be incidentally affected by such activities. Additionally, some permits promote conservation efforts by authorizing scientific research, enhancement, and/or allowing managmenet activities to go forward. The online application system includes scientific research permits, enhancement permits, 4(d) research authorizations, incidental take permits, incidental take authorizations, photography permits, general authorizations, permits to import/export parts for scientific research, authorization to import/export pre-Act parts, authorization to receive U.S. stranded marine mammal parts for scientific research or education, permits related to public display. 4(d) Approvals: Certain activities, including research and enhancement, that may result in the take of certain threatened species may be approved under 4(d) rules. These are not permits, but they do provide limits on take prohibitions. For more information visit: http://www.nwr.noaa.gov/ESA-Salmon-Regulations-Permits/4d-Rules/Final-4d-Rules.cfm . For NOAA Fisheries Northwest Region Electrofishing Guidelines visit: http://www.nwr.noaa.gov/ESA-Salmon-Regulations-Permits/4d-Rules/upload/electro2000.pdf Endangered Species Act (ESA) Permits: Any activity including research, enhancement, or incidental harassment that may result in the take (take is defined as to 'harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect' an animal or attempt to engage in any such conduct) of a threatened or endangered species, whether or not deliberate, requires a permit. For more information visit: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/esa_permits.htm Marine Mammal Act (MMPA) Permits: These include scientific research on marine mammals, import/export of marine mammal parts for scientific research, enhancement of the survival or recovery of a species or stock, commercial and educational photography, first-time import for public display, capture from the wild for public display, incidental take during commercial fisheries, incidental take during non commercial fisheries. For more information visit: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/mmpa_permits.htm#nonlisted It should be noted that there are a few factors contributing to some possible deficiencies in this dataset. Currently the APPS database only includes data for permits and authorizations that may be applied for online. Please note that information in APPS has been pulled from multiple databases, which did not all collect the same information. Thus, some data may be missing or incomplete. The current APPS database went live in California in 2008. Data from a previous version of the database was pulled into the new database at that time. Additionally, some permits are issued for large geographic areas and therefore may not appear in the list of search results by HUC (watershed) even though their geographic footprint includes the HUC of interest.

Supplemental information
Please visit https://apps.nmfs.noaa.gov/index.cfm to see the full range of products and services offered by the NOAA NMFS APPS database. The Hydrologic Unit boundaries displayed in this feature class were derived from a layer prepared by the California Department of Fish and Game to display and analyze federal hydrologic unit codes in California. These basin definitions were developed by USGS and are designed to be used as administrative reporting units based on an 8-digit hydrologic unit hierarchy. For more information about USGS Hydrologic Unit Maps please visit water.usgs.gov/GIS/huc.html The links used to connect the geographic features to the APPS database were taken from the URL that returned when the APPS database (https://apps.nmfs.noaa.gov/search/search.cfm) was searched with the following parameters set: FOR LINK Individual File Number = Blank Applicant/Holder = Blank Which records? = Approved Reports Permit/Authorization Type = All Types Locations to display = Proect location(s) match exact criteria Species: nothing selected Endangered/threatened poputions: noting selected Capture Methods: nothing selected Procedures: nothing selected Project year(s) = All Years Ocean Basin = All Areas State = California Pacific Marine and Anadromous Fish Basins = the appropriate basin name and code for the geographic feature.
