Abstract

Critical habitat includes the water, waterway bottom, and adjacent riparian zone of specified river reaches. Adjacent riparian zones are defined as those areas within a horizontal distance of 300 feet (91.4 m) from the normal line of high water of a stream channel (600 feet or 182.8 m, when both sides of the stream channel are included) or from the shoreline of a standing body of water.

Distribution Information

No Distributions available.

Use Constraints:

These data are not the official legal definition of critical habitat. The Code of Federal Regulations (50 CFR 226.205) is the source for the legal definition of the critical habitat designation.

Abstract:

Critical habitat includes the water, waterway bottom, and adjacent riparian zone of specified river reaches. Adjacent riparian zones are defined as those areas within a horizontal distance of 300 feet (91.4 m) from the normal line of high water of a stream channel (600 feet or 182.8 m, when both sides of the stream channel are included) or from the shoreline of a standing body of water.

Purpose:

These data represent critical habitat designated (December 28, 1993, 58 FR 68543) under the Endangered Species Act for the Snake River sockeye salmon ESU.

These river/stream (line) data should be used in conjunction with lake (polygon) data in the SalmonSockeye_SnakeRiverESU_19931228_poly feature class.

Description:

Data creation process 2018.

SOSNR_CH.gdb -> SOSNR (feature dataset) -> SOSNR_line (feature class)

Data were developed as part of an effort to interpret and depict several salmonid critical habitat designations completed in the 1990s that relied on text-based descriptions but lacked GIS data. Habitat areas for Snake River sockeye were identified based on the following:

1) The regulatory definition of ESA critical habitat for this species found at 50 CFR 226.205(a) and the supporting final rule (58 FR 68543, December 28, 1993);

2) The USGS high resolution National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) - downloaded February 2018;

3) Intrinsic Potential (IP) GIS data developed by the NMFS Northwest Fisheries Science Center;

4) National Elevation Dataset and Digital Topographic Maps;

5) Fish Passage Barriers data from StreamNet www.StreamNet.org;

6) NMFS recovery planning documents for the Snake River basin;

7) The professional judgment of biologists from the NMFS Interior Columbia Basin Office;

8) Maps and documentation found in the references below.

Upstream extent notes.

Used NHD flowlines to identify perennial* inlet creeks (including their perennial tributaries and any braided reaches) from their confluence with the nursery lake upstream to the first endpoint using the following criteria:

(a) the first 20% gradient barrier calculated from DEM data (Tile 08 Idaho, National Elevation Dataset (NED), with a Horizontal Grid Spacing of 1/3 arc second, approx. 10 meters); or

(b) the first impassable falls (based on StreamNet barrier data); or

(c) the first confluence (intermittent or perennial) upstream of a reach classified as High IP for spring/summer Chinook; or

(d) the end of the NHD reach.

* The only exception to this was if an intermittent inlet creek had supplemental information indicating sockeye presence (e.g., the south inlet of Pettit Lake).

Description:

SOSNR_line feature class (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269) geographic transformation not necessary, saved as SOSNR_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269).

Geometry was not edited, attributes were not edited, metadata was edited.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 1113824
Description:

The 2019 version SOSNR_ch.shp (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269) was converted into the standardized feature class SalmonSockeye_SnakeRiverESU_19931228_line (GCS_WGS_84 wkid 4326) using the National Critical Habitat Geodatabase processing protocol.

During standardization, geometry was not edited. Attributes were edited. Metadata was edited and populated using the final rule and metadata from the source SOSNR_CH.gdb -> SOSNR (feature dataset) -> SOSNR_line (feature class) (GCS_North_American_1983 wkid 4269).

Migrated fields: "GNIS_Name" into "UNIT", "FCode" into "NOTES" (populated descriptions with FCode values)

Dropped fields: OBJECTID, Perm_ID, FDate, Resolution, GNIS_ID, LengthKM, ReachCode, DPS, ShapeLength
