Item Identification

Title: NY/NJ Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island 2016 FISH Polygons
Short Name: NY/NJ Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island 2016 FISH Polygons
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

This data set contains sensitive biological resource data for marine, estuarine, anadromous, and freshwater fish species in the New York/New Jersey Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island region. Vector polygons in this data set represent fish distributions, spawning and nursery areas, concentration areas, migration areas, anadromous fish runs, and harvest areas. 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 the the NY/NJ Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island region. 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) 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 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.

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: 712523
Description:

Step 1. Selection of species and data sources. Three main sources of data were used to depict fish distribution and seasonality for this data layer: 1) digital/tabular data sets provided by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP); 2) published and unpublished reports; and 3) expert knowledge from resource experts.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 722873
Description:

Step 2. Developing ESI data for Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon. Atlantic (NJ state endangered, federally endangered) and shortnose sturgeon (federally and state endangered) were mapped to areas where they are known to occur. Polygons were based on data provided by NYSDEC staff, Dr. Keith Dunton of Delaware State University, published literature, and expert knowledge from Kathy Hattala and Kim McKown of NYSDEC. Important spawning, nursery, and wintering areas on the Hudson River were identified by Kathy Hattala. Coastal aggregation areas of subadult Atlantic sturgeon near the Rockaways and Sandy Hook were based on Dunton and others 2010. An Atlantic sturgeon migratory route along the NY/NJ coast to the 20 m isobath was mapped using Dunton and others 2015.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 722891
Description:

Step 3. Developing ESI data for alewife, blueback herring, and American shad. Alewife, blueback herring, and American shad spawning runs were mapped using information provided by NJDEP and NYSDEC as well as knowledge from agency biologists and local experts. River herring runs were mapped to the first known barrier such as a dam or impassable gradient. If the run went beyond the water features in the ESI hydrographic layer, then it was mapped using stream line features and buffered by 5 m to convert to a polygon feature. Embayments on the Hudson River are important to early life stages of river herring and were included as nursery areas. River herring pre-spawning concentrations at the mouths of certain rivers were mapped as migration areas. Timing of migration and spawning was provided by resource experts. Additional anadromous fish concentration areas on the Hudson River were mapped using New York Natural Heritage Program (NY NHP) data, and an anadromous fish migration corridor on the lower Hudson River was mapped using expert knowledge.

Process Step 4

CC ID: 722892
Description:

Step 4. Developing ESI data for other fish species in the tidal Hudson River. In addition to sturgeon, river herring, and American shad, special attention was given to mapping the following commercially or recreationally important species on the Hudson River: American eel, striped bass, Atlantic tomcod, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and walleye. The Lower Hudson River and its tributaries provides extensive spawning and nursery habitat for these species. Resource experts from NYSDEC provided most of the information used to map general distributions and critical spawning, nursery, and wintering areas, and seasonalities. The 2002-2007 Hudson fish distribution data (AKRF 2010) were used to delineate spawning and nursery areas for Atlantic tomcod. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Mid-Atlantic Estuarine Living Marine Resource (ELMR) data were used map the general distribution, concentration values, and seasonality for other species in the Hudson River estuary based on salinity zones. In some cases, distributions were further refined with additional salinity data from The Nature Conservancy. Important multi-species concentration areas such as Haverstraw Bay were identified using New York State Department of State (NYSDOS) Significant Coastal Fish and Wildlife Habitat digital data and narratives.

Process Step 5

CC ID: 722893
Description:

Step 5. Assessing ocean distribution and abundance of selected species. The ocean distribution of fish was mapped using three fisheries independent trawl survey datasets: NJ Ocean Trawl Survey (OTS), Virginia Institute of Marine Science's Northeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (NEAMAP), and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center Bottom Trawl survey. Independent sampling data from NJ OTS and NEAMAP were provided as catch per unit effort (CPUE) by station. Polygons used to aggregate sampling stations were based on the depth strata used by NJ OTS and correspond to generalized 10-m and 20-m isobaths. These polygons were further divided into along the south shore of Long Island from west to east using divisions at the Fire Island and Moriches inlets. The NJ OTS was the primary dataset used to determine concentration values and seasonality for NJ ocean fish distribution. This is a multispecies survey that occurs five times a year (January, April, June, August, and October). Survey strata are assigned to 3 different depth regimes; inshore (3-5 fathoms), midshore (5-10 fathoms), and offshore (10-15 fathoms). The most recent 10 years of available data (2004 – 2013) were used for this effort. The presence of a species for a given month, in a given depth strata, was based on the occurrence rates. Species caught more than one tenth of the time at sampling stations within a polygon and across the ten-year sampling window were marked as present for that month. Species with similar life history, behavior, and habitat requirements were grouped into ELMR guilds for comparison. Within these guilds, average CPUE for all months was used to assign “LOW”, “MEDIUM”, and “HIGH” concentrations, corresponding to the first, second and third, and fourth quartiles of averaged CPUE respectively. Concentration and seasonality information was sometimes adjusted based on review by NJDEP Bureau of Marine Fisheries staff or to be consistent with published information. Data from NEAMAP were used to map the inshore and midshore fish distributions in NY. Sampling for this program occurs in the spring and fall (typically May and October) and data used for this effort were collected from 2007 to 2013. NEAMAP data were supplemented with NMFS data (1979-2008) for the offshore polygons and for species not included in the NEAMAP data. Concentrations were assigned using the same method as with NJ OTS. The NMFS data that was downloaded from the U.S. Ocean Biogeographic Information System did not include catch numbers; therefore, species were mapped as “PRESENT” if they appeared in the NMFS bottom trawl survey for a given polygon. EFH vector digital data were used for mapping Highly Migratory Species. A concentration area at Montauk Point Shoals was mapped using NYSDOS Significant Coastal Fish and Wildlife Habitat.

Process Step 6

CC ID: 722894
Description:

Step 6. Developing ESI data for freshwater fish species. Recreationally important freshwater fish were mapped in NY using the Recommended Public Fishing Areas vector data and interviews with NYSDEC fisheries biologists on Long Island and in the NYC metro area. These areas were given the mapping qualifier “HARVEST AREA” to emphasize the recreational/ economic value of the species mapped within them. NYSDEC biologists provided seasonality and concentrations.

Process Step 7

CC ID: 722895
Description:

Step 7. Special considerations in developing the ESI FISH feature data set. The above digital and/or expert knowledge sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the FISH data layer. Depending on the type of source data, two general approaches are used for compiling the data layer: 1) digital data layers are evaluated and used "as is" or integrated with the ESI base map features (ESIP, HYDROP, ESIL) 2) information gathered during initial interviews and reports are compiled and digitized using ESI base map features. 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.
