Summary

These data include species occurrence records of fish in oceans within 1000 kilometers of the United States shoreline. This dataset is a subset of the OBIS-USA dataset as of December 2, 2014 and includes records of the taxonomic groups of Actinopterygii, Chondrichthyes, Myxini, Osteichthyes, and Petromyzontida. After initial taxonomic queries, the remaining data were further queried to retain only samples within 1000 kilometers of the U.S. shoreline. Spatial queries were then used to remove samples overlaying land masses. Data are provided in a geodatabase format, as well as a comma seperated values format. OBIS-USA provides aggregated, interoperable biogeographic data collected primarily from U.S. waters and oceanic regions--the Arctic, [...]

Purpose

This subset of OBIS-USA was developed to help partners of the National Fish Habitat Partnership (NFHP) visualize and access available fish data through the NFHP Data System. OBIS-USA is a national program being led by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with other Federal agencies including NOAA/IOOS, BOEM, NODC, and U.S. Navy. OBIS-USA is the U.S. regional node of the International Ocean Biogeographic Information System (iOBIS). International OBIS is a global system comprised of a series of regional and thematic nodes that collaborate to provide access to marine biogeographic data. They follow international data standards and operational protocols to facilitate access to and interoperability of data. Scientists, resource managers, and policy makers can use OBIS-USA data to understand species and ecosystems as well as to monitor, evaluate, and forecast change in our oceans.
