Item Identification

Title: Lavaca Bay 1985-1987
Short Name: Lavaca Bay 1985-1987
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Samples were collected from October 15, 1985 through June 12, 1987 in emergent marsh and non-vegetated habitats throughout the Lavaca Bay system to characterize usage of saline coastal and brackish deltaic habitats by estuarine aquatic species. Results suggest that short term lowering of salinity does not deter estuarine organisms from using deltaic marshes, but rather long term habitat changes may cause these responses

Purpose:

Identify and describe the relationship between fishery productivity and the coastal environment.

Notes:

The use of Spartina marshes by fishery species in Lavaca Bay, Texas, with reference to the effects of floods: October 1985 through June 1987

Data Quality

Accuracy:

Data were entered into spreadsheets and checked against the raw data sheet to avoid entry errors

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Each sample was assigned a unique identification code. Field collected samples were tagged redundantly (e.g. one label inside of the collection vessel and a matching label attached to the outside of the vessel). The identifier and its associated information (e.g. date, location, habitat) was recorded on field data sheets. Once a sample arrived at the laboratory, the label remained with the sample throughout the various stages of sample processing. After data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or similar database file, the information was printed out and compared against the field data sheets by two biologists. Corrections were made at this time and saved. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 284885
Description:

After sample collection, field data were entered into an Excel spreadsheet or database file (DBF) using database manager software. A text file was created to describe these data and associated variables. Entered data were checked against the field sheets by two biologists to minimize entry errors. Samples were processed in the laboratory, sorted, specimens identified and measured, and information was entered into an Excel spreadsheet or DBF file. Files were printed out and compared against original data sheets by two biologists for data entry errors. Corrections were made at this time, the electronic file was saved, and a back-up copy made. Hard copies of the QCd files were printed and stored in the project folder along with the original field and laboratory data sheets. The electronic file was also sorted and examined by the Lab Supervisor or other project personnel in a variety of ways to look for outliers, missing data, and other potential errors. Verified data files were then saved electronically on the Galveston Laboratory server and backed-up as needed.
