The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.
StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.
To search the Data Store, enter key words, project numbers, species, methods, etc. into the search box below and click "Search".

|Summary / Abstract
||This data set was created in 2002 as StreamNet and Oregon DEQ began work on a regional database structure for sharing macroinvertebrates data in the Pacific Northwest. That effort fell short due to lack of funding to complete the job. This data set is the Oregon DEQ bugs database, converted into the first draft of what was to be a regional database format. The data set has not been updated since that effort. Contact Oregon DEQ for data past 2002.
