Description
Abstract: Oregon Fish Habitat Distribution. These data describe areas of suitable habitat believed to be used currently or historically by native or non-native fish populations. The term "currently" is defined as within the past five reproductive cycles. Historical habitat includes suitable habitat that fish no longer access and will not access in the foreseeable future without human intervention. This information is based on sampling, the best professional opinion of Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife or other natural resources agency staff biologists or modeling (see the fhdBasis field). Due to natural variations in run size, water conditions, or other environmental factors, some habitats identified may not be used annually. These data now comply with the Oregon Fish Habitat Distribution Data Standard that was adopted by the Oregon Geographic Information Council in April 2020. The Standard document can be found at: https://www.oregon.gov/geo/standards/OregonFishHabitatDistributionDataStandard_v4.pdf. Historical habitat distribution data are within the scope of the standard and are identified via the habitat use (fhdUseType) attribute. Historical habitats are only identified outside of currently accessible habitat and are not comprehensive. Data representing current habitat for anadromous and resident salmonid species are generally more comprehensive than data for non-game and non-native fish species. All datasets are subject to update as new information becomes available. Key features of the Oregon Fish Habitat Distribution Data include: species, run, life history, habitat use, origin, production, the basis for each record, originator name, originator entity and reference. Habitat distribution data are mapped at a 1:24,000 scale statewide and are based on the National Hydrography dataset. The data are made available as GIS files in both shapefile and ESRI geodatabase format. The data were developed over an extensive time period ranging from 1996 to 2022. The data are now managed on the National Hydrography Dataset and have been synchronized to December 2021 NHD geometry.

Purpose: To provide an inventory of fish habitat distribution for documentation, mapping and analysis.

Time Period of Content: 1996 - 2022
Geographic Extent: Oregon
Status: Final
Use Constraints: Care was taken in the creation of these themes, but they are provided "as is". The Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife cannot accept any responsibility for errors, omissions, or positional accuracy in the digital data or underlying records. There are no warranties, expressed or implied, including the warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, accompanying any of these products. However, notification of any errors would be appreciated. Please note that historical habitat distribution data are not comprehensive. Data representing current habitat for anadromous and resident salmonid species are generally more comprehensive than data for non-game and non-native fish species. All datasets are subject to update as new information becomes available. The lack of a record identifying habitat for any species in any waterbody is not proof of unsuitable / inaccessible habitat unless otherwise specified by the End Extent attribute in a downstream reach.
Format: GIS (datasets grouped separately by streams and lakes)


Data Quality Information
Lineage-Source: Oregon Fish Habitat Distribution data have been in development since the mid 1990's up to the present. The spatial data represent a large compilation of fish observation and opinion-based data from dozens of biologists with ODFW, USFS, BLM, ODF, tribes and numerous other consultants, university and non-profit contributors to the database. ODFW stewards the state standard Oregon Fish Habitat Distribution Database. The data are managed in the USGS Hydrography Event Management (HEM) tool compliant, event feature class format based on the National Hydrography Dataset. Publication datasets have had their NHD attributes removed to improve the usability of the data for viewing and querying purposes.
