STREAMNET DATA STORE

Add Your Data Set


Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

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 includes 3 different files:

1. Aquatic Values: Contains waterbody ratings for aquatic connectivity, game fish life history, game fish quality, species of concern and native species on stream and lakes in western Montana as depicted in the Montana Crucial Planning System (CAPS). Visit http://fwp.mt.gov/wildthings/conservationInAction/crucialAreas.html for more detailed information on the planning system.

2. Game Fish Life History Support Areas: Important and critical spawning, rearing, and thermal refuge areas as delineated by local MFWP biologist. This dataset was used in the calculation of "game fish life history" values.

3. Unique Fishing Opportunities: Unique fishing opportunities that contributed to "game fish quality" values.
