Item Identification

Title: Northwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESI FISH Polygons
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018
Abstract:

This data set contains sensitive biological resource data for marine, estuarine, diadromous, freshwater, and federally and/or state endangered, threatened, or rare fish species in Northwest Peninsular Florida. Vector polygons in this data set represent fish distributions, spawning and nursery areas, concentration areas, migration areas, 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 Northwest Peninsular Florida. 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.

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, check 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 Step 1

CC ID: 788985
Description:

Emphasis was put on mapping the juvenile life stage for fish due to their comparatively high risk to an oiling event compared with adults. Adults, larvae, eggs, and spawning areas were mapped for a handful of species with high importance to the region based on a review with biological experts from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) and the University of Florida. The primary source for juvenile presence and seasonality information in nearshore and inshore habitats was the Fisheries Independent Monitoring (FIM) Stratified Random Sampling data set from the FWRI. The FIM Stratified Random Sampling data set is a conglomeration of juvenile fish surveys and includes species names, survey locations, and a catch per unit effort (CPUE), among other data. Juvenile fish species mapped based on this data set received qualitative concentration values (CONC) based on the results of a K-means test. This K-means test was run to create 3 distinct density categories (HIGH, MED, and LOW) for each species based on CPUE. These concentration categories were calculated separately for Tampa Bay, for surveys where CPUE = number of animals per 100 square meters, and for surveys where CPUE = number of animals per set. The primary source for juvenile presence and seasonality in Tampa Bay was a derived data set based on the FIM Stratified Random Sampling data set. To come up with this derived data set, statistical and spatial analyses were run on raw FIM data to determine patterns of community structure and to develop a spatial model for the changes in nekton community throughout the year in Tampa Bay (Santi and Whaley, 2017). Data mapped using sources other than the FIM Stratified Random Sampling data set were given concentration values based on various input sources. Ranging from lowest to highest, these values are: Rare, Low, Present, Common, Abundant, and Very High or Highly Abundant. Other sources of information came from NOAA, the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission, the United States Geological Survey, the University of Florida, SEDAR (Southeast Data, Assessment, and Review), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, fishbase.org, and Mote Marine Laboratory. Critical habitat, essential fish habitat, and some FIM survey data came in the form of vector digital data and were clipped to the AOI. SEAMAP trawl, reef fish, and plankton survey data as well as some FIM survey data, commercial fisheries landings data from the FWRI, and hogfish survey data from the FWRI were received as spreadsheets with geographic coordinates that were later transformed into a GIS format. Information received as written reports and/or written information on websites (eg. IUCN Red List and fishbase.org) was translated to a GIS format with the aid of bathymetric contours from NOAA and consultation with biological experts. 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.
