Steelhead Critical Habitat, Central Valley - NOAA [ds123]

Metadata Updated: April 10, 2015

This layer depicts areas designated for Steelhead Critical Habitat as well as habitat type and quality in the California Central Valley Evolutionary Significant Unit (ESU - a "distinct population" of Pacific salmon defined as a "species" under the Endangered Species Act). These data represent the stream segments identified as Critical Habitat by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) Southwest Regional Office (SWR). The linework for this layer is based on the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) 1:100,000 scale stream based routed hydrography. SWR biologists divided the routed hydrography into stream segments using the best available information to represent local Steelhead distribution and habitat. As a result, each segment has its own unique identifier (GIS_Link) and related presence and habitat information. The data set is in shapefile format and can be included as a map layer in a GIS. This data set This GIS layer is part of a larger mapping effort to define the anadromous distribution and to designate critical habitat in five steelhead ESU's and two Chinook ESU's in California. Several NOAA Fisheries offices participated in this effort. As a result, although the same issues were addressed within each ESU, the offices chose differing approaches to define and populate the habitat attributes. The consequence is that there are some slight differences in the attribute tables between the coastal ESUs and the Central Valley ESUs.
