Item Identification

Title: Southwest Peninsular Florida 2016 ESI FISH Polygons
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2017-02
Abstract:

This data set contains sensitive biological resource data for marine, estuarine, and select freshwater species Southwest Florida. Vector polygons in this data set represent distribution, concentration areas, spawning areas, and nursery areas for species of economic and ecological importance. Species specific abundance, seasonality, status, life history, and source information are stored in relational data tables (described below) designed to be used in conjunction with this spatial data layer.

This data set comprises a portion of the ESI data for Southwest Florida. ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil. The ESI data include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources.

Purpose:

The ESI data were collected, mapped, and digitized to provide 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.

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) 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 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.

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.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 798673
Description:

Charlotte Harbor and the Ten Thousand Islands comprise the only known available nursery habitat for smalltooth sawfish. These areas are delineated by the species critical habitat polygons, which were included in the ESI as nursery areas. In addition to mapped nursery areas, higher concentration areas for both juvenile and adults were defined by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC), NOAA staff, and published literature based on observation data, and are represented in the ESI as concentration areas with a concentration of high. In addition, the general distribution of sawfish was mapped based on the observation database maintained by NOAA Fisheries in both inshore and offshore waters. Please note, the life-history stages for elasmobranchs (sharks and sawfish) do not match the standard ESI life-history categories; months noted as 'spawning' in the ESI correspond to pupping and 'larvae' represent neonate presence.

Charlotte Harbor and the Ten Thousand Islands are recognized as important nursery areas for several species of shark. Nursery areas were identified based on published literature (e.g. Hueter and Tyminski 2007,Steiner et al., 2007). Additional species and seasonality information were added to these polygons where they were available, including in the Ten Thousand Islands.

Many of these species aggregate around hardbottom habitat; however these habitats are not well surveyed, so fish distributions in the Gulf of Mexico are represented as broad, general distribution polygons. The following polygons were created: 0-10m, 10-30m, 30-200m, and >200m. Data sources used to populate these polygons include: 1) SEAMAP trawl and reef fish survey database - observations from 2005-present were mapped and species of interest were assigned to the polygon(s) within which most of the observations fell; 2) Essential Fish Habitat polygons - used as a guidance to assign highly migratory species to appropriate areas; and 3) published sources, including fishery management council documents were used to assign remaining species and seasonality information to the appropriate polygons.

Select riverine species were mapped based on published documents to the Myakka and Peace Rivers upstream of the FIM sampling database. Fishery independent monitoring (FIM) data were provided by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) to map common estuarine and inshore species. Monthly and overall estimates of catch per unit effort (CPUE) and probability of capture from 2005-present were generated for each species by gear type by geographic zone and habitat strata. Economically important species were retained in the dataset if they occurred in more than 5% of the samples in a given zone across the entire dataset. The life-history stage most commonly captured by each gear type was assigned based on expert knowledge. Select species of ecological importance were retained in the dataset if they occurred in more than 10% of the samples. CPUEs of all species that met the inclusion criteria were divided into quartiles and assigned a categorical value of high, medium or low if a record was in the top quartile, middle two quartiles, or lowest quartile, respectively.

Description:

Polygons were created to represent the zone/strata/estuary combinations provided by FFWCC. Habitat strata mapped include: shoreline (represented by a 50 m buffer of the ESI shoreline), shallow vegetated areas (based on seagrass data collected for this project), shallow nonvegetated areas, and deep area (>1.8m). Not all strata are mapped in each geographic zone, due to differences in occurrence of the habitat types. Where a species was caught by multiple gear types within a zone/strata, the higher concentration value was assigned. Monthly presence was generated for the identified life-history stages by considering a species present if they were found in more than 5% of the samples in a given month. Seasonalities generated using this method were altered to create contiguous seasonalities if possible, for use in populating the life-history months in the ESI database. Where no clear seasonality was present or could not be discerned, species were marked as present year round. Only juveniles and adults were present in this dataset. Additional life-history information on spawning, egg and larval distribution was added to these polygons for the economically valuable species based on expert knowledge and published literature.

South of Estero Bay, inshore fish species were mapped using a combination of ELMR data and trawl survey data provided by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (RBNERR). Information from the ELMR database (species, concentrations, and seasonalities) were reviewed, and additional species of interest were added based on the trawl data. Trawl data coverage was limited to four bays, and the results were extended to nearby areas per the instruction of RBNERR staff.

The above digital and/or hardcopy sources were compiled by the project biologist to create the FISH data layer. Depending on the type of source data, three general approaches are used for compiling the data layer: 1) information gathered during initial interviews and from hardcopy sources are compiled onto U.S. Geological Survey 1:24,000 topographic quadrangles and digitized; 2) hardcopy maps are digitized at their source scale; 3) digital data layers are evaluated and used "as is" or integrated with the hardcopy data sources. 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 final hardcopy maps and digital data are created.
