Item Identification

Title: North Carolina 2016 ESI FISH Polygons, Lines
Short Name: North Carolina 2016 ESI FISH Polygons, Lines
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2016
Revision Date: 2016
Publication Date: 2016-11
Abstract:

This data set contains sensitive biological resource data for marine, estuarine, anadromous, and freshwater fish species in North Carolina. Vector polygons (FISH POLYS) in this data set represent fish distributions, spawning and nursery areas, concentration areas, migration areas, anadromous fish runs, and harvest areas. Vector lines (FISH LINES) represent spawning runs that extend beyond the water features in the ESI hydrographic layer (HYDROP). Species-specific abundance, seasonality, status, life history, and source information are stored in associated data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer. This data set is a portion of the ESI data for North Carolina. As a whole, the ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil, and include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources.

Purpose:

The ESI data are intended to provide baseline environmental data for oil spill planning and response. The Clean Water Act with amendments by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 requires response plans for immediate and effective protection of sensitive resources. The ESI data may be appropriate for many other coastal management efforts, though the original intent should be kept in mind.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Data Set Type: GIS Files
Maintenance Frequency: As Needed
Maintenance Note:

Data content is considered static once published. However, if issues with the Geodatabase linkages or table contents are identified, the Geodatabase and/or the associated Map Document may be updated. Assure most current data is being used by downloading from https://response.restoration.noaa.gov/esi_download and/or comparing modification dates provided at this site.

Data Presentation Form: Map (digital)
Entity Attribute Overview:

The primary attribute tables associated with the ESI biology data are BIOFILE, SOURCES, and BREED_DT. The geographic data layer containing biological resource information (in this case, FISH POLYS and LINES) is linked to the BIOFILE using the RARNUM field. There is a many-to-many relationship from the data layer to the BIOFILE, as an RARNUM may be repeated in several geographic features. Likewise, in the BIOFILE, the same RARNUM may appear in multiple records, representing a unique combination of species found in that region. To be represented by the same RARNUM, these species groups must also share the same seasonality, concentration, mapping qualifier, and source information. The items in the BIOFILE are ELEMENT, SUBELEMENT, NAME, GEN_SPEC, S, F, STATE, S_DATE, F_DATE, GRANK, GRANKDATE, MAPPING_QUALIFIER, CONC, JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC, BREED1, BREED2, BREED3, BREED4, BREED5, RARNUM, G_SOURCE, S_SOURCE, and BREED. The G_SOURCE and S_SOURCE fields provide links to the SOURCES table, where object level source information is available. The BREED field is the link to the BREED_DT table, where searchable breed information is provided. The links to both of these tables are also many-to-many. During the collection of the ESI data, six relational data tables are used to store the attribute data. These are the BIORES, BREED, SEASONAL, SOURCES, SPECIES, and STATUS tables. When we create new ESI data, we populate these tables to maintain the integrity of the data collected. Once completed, all information populating these tables is collapsed into the BIOFILE to ease data queries and general usability of the final product.

Data Access Constraints:

None

Data Use Constraints:

DO NOT USE MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES. Management boundaries are not to be considered legal boundaries. Edges may have been altered for cartographic processes. Note that the ESI database should not be used to the exclusion of other pertinent data or information held by state or federal agencies or other organizations. Likewise, information contained in the database cannot be used in place of consultations with environmental, natural resource, and cultural resource agencies, or in place of field surveys. Recognize that the information contained in the ESI database represents known concentration areas or occurrences of natural, cultural, and human-use resources, but does not necessarily represent the full distribution or range of each species or resource. This is particularly important to recognize when considering potential impacts to protected resources, such as endangered species, wetlands, etc. Besides the above warnings, there are no use constraints on these data. Acknowledgment of the originators, publishers, contributors, and sources listed would be appreciated in products derived from these data.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

A multi-stage error checking process is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. The process includes a standardized data entry methodology, data review by in-house and external resource experts, a final Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) process, and multiple automated logical consistency checks. Quantitative data (such as densities, counts, abundances, or concentrations) provided by resource experts for inclusion in the data set may vary widely in attribute accuracy, depending upon the methodology used to collect and compile such data. For a more detailed evaluation of source data attribute accuracy, contact the sources listed in the Lineage section.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Spatial components for the biological data layers can come from expert interviews, hardcopy, or digital sources. Some of the spatial components of the biological data layers may have been developed using regional experts who estimate concentration areas. It is difficult to estimate the positional accuracy of such data, except to state that they are compiled on digital base maps with a scale of 1:24,000 or larger. Some of the spatial components of the biological data sets are developed from pre-existing digital or hardcopy sources and reflect the positional accuracy of these original data. Note that biological resource data by their very nature are considered "fuzzy", and this should be understood when considering the positional accuracy of vector digital objects representing these resources. See the Lineage and Process_Description sections for more information on the original source data and how these data were integrated or manipulated to create the final data set.

Conceptual Consistency:

A multi-stage error checking process, described in the above Attribute Accuracy Report, is used to verify both attribute accuracy and logical consistency throughout data production. This process includes multiple automated logical consistency checks that test the files for missing or duplicate data, rules for proper coding, GIS topological consistencies, and SQL SERVER(R) to ArcGIS(R) consistencies. A final review is made by the GIS manager, before the final Geodatabase and metadata are created. After the data are delivered to NOAA, they are again subjected to several consistency checks, and processed into the final delivery format.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 510870
Description:

Finfish depicted in this feature class include selected marine, estuarine, and freshwater species. Species of conservation interest, commercial or recreational importance, or ecological importance are emphasized. Fish polygons (FISH POLYS) were created based on survey information, digital data, and expert opinion provided primarily by resource experts at North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF), North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC), and NOAA.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 510871
Description:

ANADROMOUS AND CATADROMOUS SPECIES: Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon - Atlantic (federally and state endangered) and shortnose sturgeon (federally and state endangered) were mapped based on data and expert knowledge provided by Lisa Wickliffe of NOAA, Mike Loeffler of the NCDMF, Liza Hoos of North Carolina State University, Debra J. Gauthier of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Jeanne Boylan of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), and Wilson Laney of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). River herring and shad - Alewife and blueback herring, collectively known as river herring, and American shad are anadromous fish that once supported the largest commercial and recreational fisheries on the Atlantic Coast but have become severely depleted due to human impediments to inland spawning runs, habitat loss, and overfishing. Spawning runs were mapped using data and expert knowledge provided by NCDMR and NOAA. Additional shad species included in this atlas are gizzard shad, hickory shad, and threadfin shad. The aforementioned reduction in available inland habitat for spawning runs for river herring and shad occurred outside of the area of interest. If a spawning run went beyond the water features in the ESI hydrographic layer (HYDROP), this area was mapped using line features (FISH LINES). These areas are designated with "Spawning Area" and "Nursery Area" mapping qualifiers to emphasize these important life history stages. River herring pre-spawning concentrations at the mouths of certain rivers were mapped as migration areas. Timing of migration and spawning was provided primarily by Able and Fahay 2010 and resource experts. Other anadromous and catadromous species - Striped bass, an anadromous species, and American eel, a catadromous species - are included in this atlas. Adult striped bass participate in migrations in waters offshore of North Carolina. Juvenile striped bass may overwinter in estuarine waters for several years before joining the migratory population offshore. American eels go through a "yellow eel" stage lasting approximately 9 - 19 years in estuaries and inshore waters before migrating offshore to spawn in the Sargasso Sea (Able and Fahay 2010).

Process Step 3

CC ID: 510872
Description:

ESTUARINE AND BRACKISH WATER SPECIES: Fish that occur primarily in estuarine and brackish waters were mapped using a variety of sources. Fisheries independent data from NCDMF program 120 and 195 data were used to map southern and summer flounder. Program 120 is a statewide estuarine trawl survey and that primarily aims to sample juvenile fish. This sampling program is conducted yearly from May to June beginning in 1971. A subset of the Program 120 data (1990 - 2014) was used to map fish in this atlas. Program 195, also known as the Pamlico Sound Survey, was initiated in 1987 and includes trawl surveys which have been used to calculate juvenile abundance indices and estimate population parameters. Sampling for Program 195 is typically in summer and fall (June and September). Data from 1987 - 2014 were used to map fish species for this atlas. Recreational and commercial landings data provided by the NCDMF were used to determine presence/absence of adults and/or juveniles in some estuarine and brackish water systems. These data sets included month, year, waterbody, and abundance of for landings from 2006 - 2015 (abundance for recreational landings included count, while abundance for commercial landings included number of dealers as well as pounds of catch. These indices were used to supplement concentration values when other more robust data was unavailable. Thirty (30) meter gridded bathymetry data for major estuarine systems created by the Special Projects Office at NOAA were retrieved from the NOS Data Explorer Service (http://nosdataexplorer.noaa.gov) and used as a guide for mapping some species.

Email Address: orr.esi@noaa.gov

Process Step 4

CC ID: 510873
Description:

ATLANTIC OCEAN: The ocean distribution of fish was mapped primarily using two fisheries independent trawl survey datasets: Virginia Institute of Marine Science Northeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (NEAMAP) and Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP). Sampling for the NEAMAP program occurs in the spring and fall (typically May and October) and data from NEAMAP collected between 2007 and 2013 were used to map this feature class. Sampling for the SEAMAP program occurs in spring (April - May), summer (July - August), and fall (October - November) and includes data from 1986 to 2014. Offshore bathymetric contour data generated by NOAA's Office for Coastal Management were used in conjunction with NEAMAP/SEAMAP data to map offshore fish distributions for some species. Additional ocean distributions of fish were mapped using fisheries dependent data in the form of recreational and commercial landings spreadsheets from the NCDMF. Offshore fish landings from these data were divided into 4 zones: 0-3 mi North of Cape Hatteras, > 3 mi North of Cape Hatteras, 0-3 mi South of Cape Hatteras, and > 3 mi South of Cape Hatteras. Zones with 10 or fewer species occurrences in either of the fisheries dependent datasets that did not have further evidence of species presence in other sources were not mapped. Seasonality was determined primarily using Able and Fahay 2010 and expert knowledge.

Process Step 5

CC ID: 510874
Description:

FRESHWATER FISH: Recreationally important freshwater fish were mapped using species life history information from the NCWRC website (http://www.ncwildlife.org/Learning/Species#5528105-fish), recreational and commercial fisheries data from the NCDMF, and sportfish survey data from the NCWRC. Species included in Lake Mattamuskeet were compiled based on Potoka et al. 2014 (see lineage section for more information) and a species list for Lake Mattamuskeet provided by the NCWRC (Dockendorf 2009). The species list for Lake Mattamuskeet from the NCWRC includes species collected during various surveys in the lake and surrounding canals between 1949 and 2007. For the purposes of mapping fish in this atlas only data from 1990 through 2007 from this data set were used to determine species presence or absence. NOTE: After a review of current literature and consultation with experts at the NCDMF, it was determined that common carp, a species mapped in the 2011 North Carolina ESI Atlas, have the potential to be present year round in all waterbodies in the area of interest. Common carp were introduced to North America in the 1800s from Eurasia. This species is mentioned here in lieu of mapping their distribution.

Description:

See the Lineage section for additional information on the type of source data for this data layer. The ESI, biology, and human-use data are compiled into the standard ESI digital data format. A second set of interviews with participating resource experts are conducted to review the compiled data. If necessary, edits to the FISH data layer are made based on the recommendations of the resource experts and digital data are created.
