Assessing cell line models for species differences in 6PPD-quinone sensitivity

Coho salmon have been shown to be highly sensitive to the tire transformation chemical 6PPD-quinone, with concentrations contained in stormwater sufficient to induce mortality in up to 90% of the entire fall coho run. Other salmonid species (chinook, sockeye, chum) are much less sensitive to 6PPD-quinone induced mortality. This data examines the varying species sensitivities across salmoids using

The North Delta Routing and Survival Management Tool

Understanding how routing modifications influence survival of juvenile salmon is complex because reach-specific survival and routing at key river junctions in the North Delta each have a different relationship with river flow. Therefore, to facilitate understanding of how routing modifications at key river junctions influence through-Delta survival, we developed this spreadsheet model to allow man

Experimental Testing of Endangered Pallid Sturgeon to Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia Virus Genotype IVb

Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) is an aquatic rhabdovirus causing severe disease in numerous freshwater and saltwater fish species. Initially the virus was been found to cause disease in European fish populations starting around 1938 and was first detected in North America in the late 1980s. Of the four VHSV genotypes (I, II, III, and IV), the North American subtype IVb isolates have a b

PIT Tags Encountered by Klamath Falls Field Station Equipment in the Upper Klamath Basin

Data were collected as part of a long-term capture-recapture program to assess the status and dynamics of populations of two long-lived, federally endangered catostomids in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon and Clear Lake Reservoir, California. Lost River suckers (LRS; Deltistes luxatus) and shortnose suckers (SNS; Chasmistes brevirostris) have been captured and tagged with passive integrated transponder

Shed viral load and survival of spring-run and fall-run Columbia River Basin Chinook salmon exposed to 3 genogroups of infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV)

This investigation sought to characterize the shedding of infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) in two populations of Columbia River Basin (CRB) Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha). Juvenile spring- and fall-run Chinook salmon were exposed by immersion to each of three IHN virus strains from the UC, MD, and L subgroups, and then monitored for viral shedding from individual fish for

Data from 2022 Mark-Recapture Analysis on Water and Endangered Fish in the Klamath River Basin: Do Upper Klamath Surface Elevation and Water Quality Affect Adult Lost River and Shortnose Sucker survival?

The data provided were used in a mark-recapture analysis conducted in 2022. Environmental covariates included water quality and Upper Klamath Lake surface elevation. Raw data were downloaded from the USGS Oregon Water Science Center for multiple sampling sites (422622122004000_MDNL_2021-1-14.csv, 422622122004003_MDNU_2021-1-14.csv, 422042121513100_RPT_2021-1-14.csv, 422719121571400_WMR_2021-1-14.c

Marginal increment and age data from fin rays of endangered suckers

Data included in this data set are from suckers collected in Hagelstein Pond from 2014 through 2021. Data were collected on age, marginal increment, and marginal increment ratios from fin rays, and length of suckers captured during monthly sampling events. There are two levels of data. Fin ray data contains 409 records and the data file is 31 KB, repeat data contains 58 records and the data file i

Survival and viral load of chinook salmon, sockeye salmon, and steelhead trout exposed to 4 genogroups of infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV)

Theory of the evolution of pathogen specialization suggests that a specialist pathogen gains high fitness in one host, but this comes with fitness loss in other hosts. By contrast, a generalist pathogen does not achieve high fitness in any host, but gains ecological fitness by exploiting different hosts, and has higher fitness than specialists in non-specialized hosts. As a result, specialist path

Data used to parameterize and evaluate a bioenergetics model for Redside Shiner (Richardsonius balteatus)

This release includes data used to fit mass- and temperature-dependent functions for consumption and respiration of redside shiner based on controlled laboratory experiments of maximum consumption (Cmax) rates and routine metabolic rates using intermittent-flow respirometry, across a range of fish sizes (0.6–27.3 g) and temperatures (5–31° C). Long term growth experiments were conducted to evaluat

Spatial and temporal surveys of salmon eDNA in Seattle urban creeks, Washington, 2018 - 2020

The data support a study that surveyed the spatial and temporal distribution of salmon eDNA in Seattle urban creeks, Washington, 2018 - 2020. The metadata represent qPCR quantification cycle (Cq) values for Chinook salmon, coho salmon, and coastal cutthroat trout assays performed on water samples collected on specific days at specific sites on Thornton Creek, Taylor Creek, and Mapes Creek, which a

Analytical and diagnostic validation of a molecular test to detect and discriminate IHNV genogroups U and M

Infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) is an acute pathogen of salmonids in North America, Europe and Asia that is phylogenetically classified into five major virus genogroups (U, M, L, E and J). The geographic range of the U and M genogroup isolates overlap in the North American Columbia River Basin and Washington Coast region, where these genogroups pose different risks depending on the

Histological and molecular testing of nuclear inclusion X in Pacific Razor clams from select locations in Washington, USA

Nuclear inclusion X (NIX), the etiological agent of bacterial gill disease in Pacific razor clams (Siliqua patula) was associated with host mortality events in coastal Washington, USA during the mid-1980s. Ongoing observations of truncated razor clam size distributions in Kalaloch Beach, Washington raised concerns that NIX continues to impact populations. We conducted a series of spatial and longi
