Item Identification

Title: Louisiana and Lower Mississippi River 2014 ESI FISH Polygons
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2013-12
Abstract:

This data set contains sensitive biological resource data for marine, estuarine, anadromous, and freshwater fish species in coastal Louisiana and the lower Mississippi River. Vector polygons in this data set represent fish distribution, concentration areas and nursery areas. 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 Louisiana. 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) 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.

Description:

The software packages used to develop the atlas are Environmental Systems Research Institute's ARC/INFO(R) (version 10.2) and SQL SERVER(R) (version 2005). The hardware configuration is PC's with Windows Operating System 7.

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, hardcopy 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 hardcopy base maps with a scale of 1:24,000. 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 a several consistency checks, and processed into the final delivery format.

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

Process Step 1 refers to the ESI FISH data developed for Coastal Louisiana. Process Step 2 refers to the ESI FISH data developed for the Lower Mississippi River.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 829447
Description:

This process step refers to the ESI data developed for Coastal Louisiana. The mapping extent was dependent upon information availability and location of mapped coastal habitats and shorelines. Sources of data used to depict fish distribution and seasonality for this data layer include Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) fishery independent monitoring data, published information, digital data from Louisiana Natural Heritage Program (LNHP), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and University of Miami Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Science (UM-CIMAS) and anecdotal information from resource experts from LDWF and NMFS. Polygons representing gulf sturgeon distribution were derived from the USFWS/NMFS critical habitat shapefiles and divided into seasonal concentration areas based on published literature. Polygons representing pallid sturgeon distribution were provided by LNHP. Nursery areas for lemon sharks are depicted in the Chandeleur Islands. Polygons representing marine and estuarine fish distribution were based on sub-basin boundaries provided by LDWF. These polygons are clipped to waters connected to the Gulf of Mexico and adjacent wetlands. This was done to reduce the spatial complexity of the dataset. Species concentration and abundances are based on 2003-2012 fishery independent monitoring datasets provided by LDWF. Some species were grouped for the purpose of the ESI, including anchovies, bream (bream and sunfishes), buffalo (smallmouth and black buffalo), herrings and sardines (Clupeid spp.), crappie (black and white crappie), croakers (Atlantic croaker and spot), forage fish (butterfishes, harvestfish, leatherjacket, lookdown), kingfishes (southern and Gulf kingfish), killifish and white trout (sand and sliver seatrout). For these resources, monthly catch per unit effort (CPUE) was calculated for each sub-basin and used to derive concentration values. Seasonality was created by considering a species present in all months with higher than 10 percent occurrence in an area. Life history information was added based on expert knowledge and published literature. All information was reviewed by LDWF staff and adjusted as needed. Other species were added to sub-basins based on published information, NFMS EFH shapefiles and anecdotal information. Please note, the life history stages for sharks do not match the standard ESI life history stages for fish and should be interpreted as follows: spawning = parturition and larvae = neonates. The LDWF-LNHP provided information for some of the federally and state listed species and species of conservation concern for display in the ESI atlas and accompanying digital data in 2013. The available LNHP data sets are to be used for oil spill response and spill response planning only. These data represent existing information known to the LNHP at the time of the request and should never be substituted for consultation with the LNHP.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 829474
Description:

This process step refers to the data developed for the Lower Mississippi River study area. Sources of data used to depict fish distribution and seasonality for this data layer include Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) fishery independent monitoring data, published information, and anecdotal information from resource experts at LDWF, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Water bodies were grouped by LDWF into areas with similar species assemblages. A combination of fishery independent monitoring data and expert opinion was used to derive species concentration and seasonality information for each defined water body. Additional information on Gulf sturgeon was included based on published literature.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 829526
Description:

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.
