Catch and Biomass per unit effort of fishes in two Northern Wisconsin lakes from 2017-2021

Inland lake ecosystems are transforming due to unprecedented effects of climate changes and disturbance along riparian habitat, diminishing their potential to support fisheries. Walleye Sander vitreus, the most sought-after game fish in north-central North America supporting robust recreational and tribal fisheries, have declined. Climate change, harvest, invasive species, and concurrent increases

Eastern oyster Dynamic Energy Budget model outputs under current (2014-2020) and projected (2041-2050) temperature and salinity conditions in Texas and Louisiana estuaries and along northern Gulf of Mexico coast

Compilation of all outputs from the modeling study presented in Lavaud et al. (2023; IP-156006). In this study a Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) model for the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, was run under different scenarios of current (2014–2020) and future (2041–2050) temperature and salinity conditions across six key Texas and Louisiana estuaries to derive an aquaculture index, based on surv

Physiological Analysis of Eleutherodactylus Specimens in West-Central Puerto Rico, 2021-2022

Amphibians are vulnerable to extinction owing, partly, to altered physiological processes induced by projected global warming and drying. Understanding the mechanisms behind their responses is essential to formulate adaptation strategies for their conservation. Puerto Rico harbors 15 endemic Eleutherodactylus frogs considered vulnerable to extinction due to poor vagility and sensitivity to environ

Global dataset of nutritional value, economic value, and climate vulnerability for species-specific recreational fisheries harvest for consumption

These data are nutrition, economic value, and climate vulnerability of inland recreational consumption by country. The dietary contribution is measured as calcium, omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid (hereafter referred as DHA+EPA), iron, protein, vitamin B12, and zinc supply. The economic contribution is measured as total consumptive use v

Developing a Stochastic Hydrological Model for Informing Lake Water Level Drawdown Management

This data release consists of four datasets which were used for evaluating winter drawdown (WD) lakes to follow the Massachusetts general WD guidelines. The first dataset ("Water level observations.csv") provides water level monitoring data of 21 (18 WD and 3 non-WD) recreational lakes in Massachusetts from 2014 to 2018. The water levels were measured by paired nonvented pressure transducers (HOBO

High Resolution Canopy Structure and Density Metrics for Southwest Colorado Derived from 2019 Aerial Lidar

Canopy density and canopy structure metrics were derived for the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado from aerial point cloud data at a 1-meter (m) resolution. The aerial lidar data originated from the ‘CO_Southwest_NRCS_2018’ project prepared by Quantum Spatial for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from a series of flyovers between 2018 and 2019 and were made available in 2021. Canopy density

Snow Measurements in Specific Canopy Structure Regimes for the 2022-2023 Water Years, North of Coal Creek, San Juan Mountains, Colorado, USA

These data include snow depth and snow water equivalence (SWE) for the 2022 and 2023 water years during 16 separate field campaigns. The field area is comprised of 311 surveyed points in, on the perimeter of, and surrounding six forest openings next to Coal Creek off Coal Bank Pass in the San Juan Mountains in Southwest Colorado, USA. These measurements were taken to look at the relationship betwe

Broadly Shared Information Needs among Grassland Managers in the North Central Region

The broadly shared information needs for grassland managers in the North Central region to meet conservation goals in a changing climate are presented and ranked as highly relevant, somewhat relevant, or not relevant for federal, state, tribal, and non-governmental grassland-managing entities.

Species of Greatest Conservation Need in the North Central Region

This file provides a table of all the of Species of Greatest Conservation Need listed in the North Central states' (MT, WY, CO, ND, SD, NE, and KS) State Wildlife Action Plans as of summer 2020. Species are organized by the number of states which listed them as Species of Greatest Conservation Need, and then by scientific name. Federal status is also provided for each species. This table is adapte

The U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat): A Database and Interactive Tool for Inland Fisheries Management and Research

The U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat) contains data compiled from 14,729 creel and angler surveys conducted by state natural resource management agencies (including Washington DC and Puerto Rico) in inland waters across the United States. Data is are contained in eight .csv files which contain information about survey characteristics (Survey_Data.csv), angler effort (AngEffort

Data is are contained in eight .csv files which contain information about survey characteristics (Survey_Data.csv), angler effort (AngEffort

FiCli: Fish and Climate Change Database

Inland fishes provide important ecosystem services to communities worldwide and are especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Fish respond to climate change in diverse and nuanced ways which creates challenges for practitioners of fish conservation, climate change adaptation, and management. Although climate change is known to affect fish globally, a comprehensive online, public data
