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.

Nonsalmonid Gas Bubble Trauma Laboratory Experiments

Data Categories Gas bubble trauma; totals dissolved gas
Dates of Data 2022 TO 2023
Data Set Status In work
Data Set Update Schedule Annually
Date Data Set Published on StreamNet Data Store 09-07-2023
Project Name & Number 1991-029-00
Purpose of Data Set The USGS has been monitoring the incidence and severity of gas bubble trauma (GBT) in nonsalmonids in the Snake and Columbia rivers during the spring spill season since 2021. The criteria used to assess GBT are based on juvenile salmonids. We examined the progression of GBT and mortality in sculpin and threespine stickleback to refine assessment criteria and provide context for GBT signs observed in the field. This is the first time these fish have been tested as such in the laboratory.
Summary / Abstract This data set contains information on the progression of gas bubble trauma and associated mortality for sculpin spp. and threespine stickleback exposed to different levels of total dissolved gas in laboratory experiments.
