Fish Habitat Assessment Output from Bay of Quinte Suitability Modelling: Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows)

Fish Habitat Assessment Output from Bay of Quinte Suitability Modelling: Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows) Fish Habitat Assessment Output: 10 of 16 Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows) Habitat suitability was assessed for the Bay of Quinte Area of Concern, at a 3 m grid resolution, using the Habitat Ecosystem Assessment Tool (HEAT), temperature algorithms, vegetation models, and water level input. Habitat classifications were based on three variables: depth (elevation), vegetation, and substrate; and modified by temperature suitabilities. The final suitability maps were based on documented habitat and temperature associations for the fish in the area. Different life stages (spawning requirements, nursery habitat, adult habitat) were modeled for the years of 1972-2011. Suitability values were scaled from 0 (not suitable) to 1 (highly suitable) and converted to suitability classes of very low, low, medium, and high. The final maps for each guild – life stage combination are maximum suitability values from the 39-year period modelled. 2020-06-08 Fisheries and Oceans Canada Jacqueline.Dosen@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyFishHabitatsModellingInland watersFreshwater fishSciences Fish Habitat Assessment Output from Bay of Quinte Suitability Modelling: Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows)ESRI REST https://gisp.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/FGP/Bay_of_Quinte_Fish_Habitat_Assessment/MapServer/9 Fish habitat assessment output from Bay of Quinte suitability modellingPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling.pdf Fish habitat assessment output from Bay of Quinte suitability modellingPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling_French.pdf ArcCatalog MetadataPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/BoQ_HabitatSuitability_ArcMetadata.pdf ArcCatalog MetadataPDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/BoQ_HabitatSuitability_ArcMetadata_Fr.pdf Scenario Reference TablePDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/Reference_Table.pdf Scenario Reference TablePDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/Reference_Table_Fr.pdf Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows)FGDB/GDB https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/BQ_FGPdata_10.gdb.zip Average Water Level (75.0m ASL) - Spawning Habitat - Low Vegetation Association Species (All Temperature Windows)FGDB/GDB https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/Fish_Habitat_Assessment_Output_from_Bay_of_Quinte_Suitability_Modelling/BQ_FGPdata_10_Fr.gdb.zip
