Item Identification

Title: Cedar River Fish Diets 2000-2001
Short Name: Cedar River Fish Diets 2000-2001
Status: Planned
Abstract:

Counts of diet items identified in fish stomach samples using a compound microscope. Diet includes invertebrates (larvae or nymph; pupae; adult) and fish from the stream, and adjacent terrestrial invertebrates that fall into stream. Objective of collecting these data were to establish baseline data on resident fish diets before provision of fish passage at the dam in 2003. Fish passage was installed to allow Pacific salmon access to the watershed above the dam for the first time in 100 yrs. For details on sample collection and processing see Kiffney, P. M., C. J. Volk, and J. Hall. 2002. Community and ecosystem attributes of the Cedar River and tributaries before arrival of anadromous salmonids. Technical report submitted to Seattle Public Utilities.

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
YEAR NUMBER Year samples were collected.
100
Stream VARCHAR2 Stream location of where sample was collected. CR= main stem Cedar from above Landsburg to Cedar Falls; TC=Taylor Creek above dam; RC=Rock Creek above dam.
100
REACH VARCHAR2 Unique geomorphic units defined by stream gradient, channel confinement, and dominant substrata. For additional details on reach designations see Kiffney, P.M., G. Pess*, J. Anderson*, P. Faulds, K. Burton and S. Riley. 2009. Changes in fish communities following recolonization of the Cedar River, WA, USA by Pacific salmon after 103 years of local extirpation.

100
Date DATE Date fish was collected. Units for values are date.
100
Taxa_name VARCHAR2 Common name of collected fish.
100
