Rainbow trout growth data and growth covariate data downstream of Glen Canyon Dam in the Colorado River, Arizona, 2012 - 2016
These data are the primary data used to estimate rainbow trout abundance and survival in the Colorado River, Glen and Grand Canyons. Refer to the analyses as per the associated journal manuscript (see Larger Work Citation). Prey availability, feeding efficiency, and competition reduce somatic growth and cause the collapse of a fish population" Nighttime boat electrofishing was used to sample rainbow trout four times per year in April, July, September, and January, from April 2012 through September 2016. A total of five reaches were sampled between Glen Canyon Dam (river kilometer [rkm] 0) to below the confluence with the Little Colorado River (located at rkm 130). Reaches ranged from two to six km in length. A total...
Mark-recapture and environmental data used to predict flannelmouth sucker (Catostomous latippinis) growth rates within the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon from April 2012 to October 2018
These data were compiled to fit Bayesian state-space growth in length models to estimate the environmental variables that influence flannelmouth sucker growth rates in the Grand Canyon. Objective(s) of our study were to quantify monthly intervals of growth of flannelmouth suckers in four river reaches, and test if novel high frequency gross primary productivity data would be a significant predictor of fish growth. These data represent capture histories for flannelmouth sucker (Catostomus latippinis) in the mainstem of the Colorado River within the Grand Canyon (river mile 0 to 226) from 2012-2018 and environmental variable data including water temperature, turbidity, and gross primary productivity. Fish data refer...
