The Bay-Delta and Tributaries Project
The Bay-Delta and Tributaries Project contains environmental data concerning the San Francisco Bay-Delta and provides public access to that data. Over fifty organizations contribute data voluntarily to this project. The database includes biological, water quality, and meteorological data. These can be used to gauge the health of the estuary and to manage water and environmental resources.
Calfish is a California cooperative fish and habitat data program. Project databases include resources related to anadromous fish abundance, distribution, fish passage assessment, hydrography, restoration projects, and stream habitats. In addition, the CalFish site offers a series of methods, metrics, approaches, and conventions either directly used by CalFish cooperators, commonly used by fisheries professionals and have become standards over time through repeated use and acceptance by the fisheries community, or are being tested and reviewed for use by the contributor. Lastly, they have a great list of website related to fisheries and restoration in California on their “Links” page
The California Data Exchange Center
The California Data Exchange Center (CDEC) installs, maintains, and operates an extensive hydrologic data collection network including automatic snow reporting gages for the Cooperative Snow Surveys Program and precipitation and river stage sensors for flood and flow forecasting. Currently, over one hundred and sixty (160) agencies provide data to CDEC and also obtain data through CDEC's cooperative hydrologic database providing a centralized location to store and process real-time hydrologic information throughout the State. The data enable forecasters to prepare flood forecasts and water supply forecasts; reservoir and hydroelectric operators to schedule reservoir releases; and water suppliers to anticipate water availability. CDEC then disseminates this information to the cooperators, public and private agencies, and news media.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) web portal
Welcome to the California Geographic Information Systems (GIS) web portal. The California Mapping Coordinating Committee (CMCC) is in the process of developing a series of GIS-related web pages to provide information on State government GIS activities, access to statewide GIS data, and links to the larger California GIS community. This website and the Spatial Information Library are works in progress.
US Department of Agriculture’s Geospatial Data Gateway
The US Department of Agriculture’s Geospatial Data Gateway provides one stop shopping for natural resources or environmental data at anytime, from anywhere, to anyone. The Gateway allows you to choose your area of interest, browse and select data from our catalog, customize the format, and have it downloaded or shipped on CD.
Estuarine Research Federation
The Estuarine Research Federation (ERF) is a multidisciplinary organization of individuals who study and manage the structure and functions of estuaries and the effects of human activities on these fragile environments. The purpose of the Estuarine Research Federation is to promote research in estuarine and coastal waters, communication between members of Affiliated Societies, and to be available as a source of advice in matters concerning estuaries and the coastal zone. The Federation's members are dedicated to advancing human understanding and appreciation of the Earth's estuaries and coasts, to the wise use and management of these environments and to making the results of their research and management actions available to their colleagues and to the public. Members of the Federation include academic researchers, public sector managers, teachers, consultants, students and others who are interested in estuaries. The Estuarine Research Federation is a private, nonprofit non partisan organization. The Federation was created in 1971, when the members of two older, regionally-based estuarine research societies (AERS and NEERS) decided that a national organization was needed to address estuarine and coastal issues more broadly. The regionally based Affiliate Societies now number seven and encompass all of the coastal regions that border the United States, Canada and Mexico. The Federation currently has approximately 1,200 members, and approximately 1,000 more who are members of the Affiliate Societies.
FishBase is a global information system with all you ever wanted to know about fishes. FishBase is a relational database with information to cater to different professionals such as research scientists, fisheries managers, zoologists and many more. FishBase on the web contains practically all fish species known to science.
Interagency Ecological Program
The Interagency Ecological Program site provides information on the factors that affect ecological resources in the Sacramento-San Joaquin estuary that allows for more efficient management of the estuary. It’s primary goals include an organizational structure in the planning and execution of studies by it’s members, and provides for the collection and analysis of data. This website has links to program workshops, data vaults, monitoring programs, and newsletters and publications.
Inforain is Ecotrust's GIS portfolio, a network of information allowing users to achieve a deeper understanding of their local watersheds, estuaries and forests.
Klamath Resource Information System
The Klamath Resource Information System (KRIS) pulls together maps, data tables, charts, photographs and bibliographic resources into an easy-to-use, PC-based computer program. For any designated watershed, KRIS organizes information relevant to fisheries and water quality so that it can be shared quickly and easily among agencies, private land owners and citizens.
Natural Resources Project Inventory
The Natural Resources Project Inventory is a comprehensive database,searchable on the internet, which includes information on thousands of conservation, mitigation and restoration projects being developed and implemented throughout California.
North Atlantic Fisheries Organization
North Atlantic Fisheries Organization The Convention on Future Multilateral Cooperation in the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries, signed on 24 October 1978 in Ottawa, came into force on 1 January 1979 following the deposit with the Government of Canada the instruments of ratification, acceptance and approval by seven signatories: Canada, Cuba, the European Economic Community (EEC), German Democratic Republic (GDR), Iceland, Norway, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). This Convention, establishing the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO), replaced the 1949 International Convention for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries and the International Commission for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries (ICNAF). The prime objective of NAFO has been to contribute through consultation and cooperation to the optimum utilization, rational management and conservation of the fishery resources of the Convention Area. NAFO promotes contemporary ideas for international collaboration in the high seas based on the scientific research fundamentals.
Regional Mark Processing Center
The Regional Mark Processing Center provides essential services to international, state, federal, and tribal fisheries organizations involved in marking anadromous salmonids throughout the Pacific region. These services include regional coordination of some tagging and fin marking programs, maintenance of databases for CWT releases and recoveries, IATMO images of releases, C&E data, and dissemination of reports of these data by request in electronic or printed form. These databases are known collectively as the Regional Mark Information System (RMIS).
San Francisco Bay-Delta Science Consortium
The San Francisco Bay-Delta Science Consortium was formed to help catalyze increasing cooperation and collaboration among institutions, to prevent the overlap of projects and resources, and to produce a quality and quantity of science unattainable by institutions working alone. The Consortium encourages researchers developing new information to work more closely with those using the information for policy applications. The website offers links to a news page with information on project funding and the latest developments, a projects page with an overview of the Consortiums primary efforts, a link to education outreach, and links to its library and online journal.
State of the Salmon
The State of the Salmon is dedicated to improving understanding of salmon status and trends across the North Pacific, and building a knowledge network that can inform salmon conservation and management decisions in the future. This includes metanalysis of existing datasets for developing baselines, permitting access to raw dataset through Inforain, and conducting risk assessments for salmon.
StreamNet is a cooperative venture of the Pacific Northwest's fish and wildlife agencies and tribes.
