Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.

StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.

Project Name & Number 1991-029-00
Purpose of Data Set In 2018, hatchery releases of subyearling fall Chinook salmon made at Hells Canyon Dam were moved to the Salmon River in part to increase the spatial diversity of the population and to increase natural production in that system. In 2021, staff of the U.S. Geological Survey began seining and PIT tagging subyearlings produced from adults that returned from these releases. The purpose is to collect metrics such as abundance, outmigration timing, and growth on this population.
Summary / Abstract This data set contains catch and PIT tagging information on subyearling fall Chinook salmon collected in the Salmon River during late spring 2021-2022.
