Item Identification

Title: Beaufort Bridgenet Ichthyoplankton Database
Short Name: Beaufort Bridgenet Ichthyoplankton Sampling
Status: In Work
Abstract:

The Beaufort Bridgenet Ichthyoplankton Sampling Program (BBISP) at the NOAA Beaufort facility is the longest consecutive ichthyoplankton ingress sampling program along the U.S. east coast. The sampling, in which fall/winter spawned larvae are collected weekly from mid-November through April/May at the Pivers Island Bridge, represents a time series, initiated in 1986, of larval fish ingress through Beaufort Inlet. Program objectives include (1) developing fishery-independent indices of abundance for use in stock assessments, and (2) determining responses of individual species and assemblages to environmental drivers, including climate variation.

Purpose:

To provide information on temporal variability in abundance paterns of fish larval ingress adjacent to Pivers Island (near Beaufort Inlet, NC).

The data will be available from a public web server once an access methodology has been developed.

Data Access Constraints:

None

Data Quality

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Handwritten data sheets and Excel format icthyoplankton data are checked for quality periodically using visual evaluation and MS Access query functions.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: No
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: 0
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: Yes
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: Yes

The data resides on a secure government network requiring multi-factor authentication for network access.

Lineage

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 283067
Description:

Environmental sampling data are written by hand during weekly sampling efforts, then entered into the master MS Access database. Periodically, icthyoplankton samples are sent away to be processed by a contracted agency species identification, abundance, and length data are returned in Excel format, and subsequently entered into the master MS Access database.
