Adult Salmonid Behavior and Characteristics, Russian River, California, 1990-1995

Description:
This point shapefile, from the Santa Rosa Subregional Long-Term Wastewater Project, Anadromous Fish Migration Study Program reports, displays the Fyke net monitoring of salmonid from three Russian River tributaries, including two target streams and one control (Maacama Creek), which were monitored over five migration seasons (1990-1995). Fyke nets fished in upstream and downstream directions, however Fyke netting is only effective during low to moderate stream flow periods so data should not be used to estimate annual salmonid populations estimates. Data collected includes information for steelhead, coho and chinook adults and juveniles. The study period included both normal and unusually dry rainfall seasons.This shapefile provides data on salmonid behavior and physical characteristics during the migration season (October - April) from 1990 to 1995.
