Description:
Abstract:
These GIS data contain stream reaches that were designated as "critical habitat" for the Middle Columbia River (MCR) steelhead Evolutionarily Significant Unit (ESU). The critical habitat is defined in the National Marine Fisheries Service's (NOAA Fisheries) final rule to designate critical habitat for 12 ESUs of Pacific salmon and steelhead. The fish distribution in this data set was compiled from data gathered from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). Additionally, we received comments from the public, federal agencies, and state and tribal salmon co-managers during the rule making process. A detailed description of this process can be found in the following document: Final Assessment of NOAA Fisheries' Critical Habitat Analytical Review Teams For 12 Evolutionarily Significant Units of Pacific Salmon and Steelhead, NOAA Fisheries Protected Resources Division, 2005. - On the Washington side of the ESU we started with 1:24,000 scale fish distribution data from WDFW. On the Oregon side of the ESU we started with 1:100,000 scale enhanced fish distribution data from ODFW. The ODFW mapped fish distribution on 1:24,000 scale USGS topographic maps and transferred the data to a 1:100,000 scale hydrography layer. However, some of the streams found on a 1:24,000 scale map are not found in the 1:100,000 scale hydrography. These non-matching streams are recorded as points representing the upper extent of fish distribution. We created new stream lines for these 1:24,000 scale points. - We have excluded portions of the range of the ESU from the final designation of critical habitat. Exclusions are based on economic and other relevant impacts considered during our analysis, as described in our 4(b)(2) Report. We also excluded Indian lands. However, due to legal concerns about the disclosure of the location of Indian lands, as well as questions about the accuracy of the data, we do not identify the location of these exclusions within this data set. For exact legal descriptions of critical habitat please consult the Federal Register notice.
Purpose:
These data describe the freshwater and estuarine areas in the agency's final rule to designate critical habitat for 12 ESUs of Pacific salmon and steelhead. The data identify the location of habitat areas that were determined to be essential for the conservation of the ESU. The data address habitat areas occupied by MCR steelhead as based on observation or the professional judgment of biologists familiar with the watershed.

These data are supplemental to the final rule to designate critical habitat for 12 ESUs of Pacific salmon and steelhead. These data are not intended to replace the information contained within the final rule for critical habitat. There are habitat areas in this data set which are excluded from critical habitat due to the presence of Indian lands or HCPs. For an exact description of critical habitat, please consult the Federal Register notice for critical habitat. - These data describe the best available information at the time of the final rule for critical habitat. The data describe habitat areas that are currently occupied by the species. However, due to natural variations in run size, water conditions, or other environmental factors, some areas displayed may not be used by a species of fish on an annual basis. Likewise, there may be additional habitat areas, not captured by these data, that are utilized by the species.

Process_Description:
The ESU data were intersected with the REO watersheds (HUC5s). The result was a network of fish distribution that could be grouped by HUC5s.
Process_Date: 2003-2004
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
In the final stages of the rule making process for critical habitat, we received comments and new information about the distribution of the ESU. During the final review of public comments and new information we revised the distribution of the ESU and made changes to the areas that were excluded from critical habitat. For a more detailed review of the changes between the proposed and final rule please refer to the final determination for critical habitat, and supporting documents.
