USGS Announces Online Access to Nationwide Fish Community Data

Data on fish communities are now available for 960 stream sites in more than
50 major river basins across the Nation. More than 1,900 fish community
samples, collected from 1993 through 2002 by the National Water-Quality
Assessment (NAWQA) Program, can be downloaded from
http://water.usgs.gov/nawqa/data. USGS fish community samples document the
presence of all fish species and their relative abundances within designated
stream reaches.

These fish data are part of the NAWQA Data Warehouse, which also provides
online access to 8 million records of water-quality information, enabling
water-resource managers, scientists, and the public to find data about the
quality of water or chemical concentrations in aquatic tissue at 4,100
stream sites and 6,500 wells across the United States.

For more information on fish sampling protocols, please refer to, "Revised
protocols for sampling algal, invertebrate, and fish communities as part of
the National Water-Quality Assessment Program" at
http://water.usgs.gov/nawqa/protocols/OFR02-150/index.html

Online access to macroinvertebrate and algae data are anticipated this
spring and summer, respectively.

For questions regarding online data retrievals, please contact
gs.nawqa.data@usgs.gov or Mr. Sandy Williamson, 253-428-3600, ext. 2683. For
technical questions, such as regarding biological collection methods and
taxonomy, please contact Dr. Steve Moulton, smoulto@usgs.gov, 703-648-6874.
Additional information about NAWQA ecological studies also is available at
http://water.usgs.gov/nawqa/ecology.

We encourage you to share this information with your staff, colleagues, and
notify your local, State, and regional stakeholders.  Thank you for your
continued interest in USGS information and findings.

If you have questions regarding distribution, you may contact Pixie Hamilton
at (804) 231-2602.
