1 NFHP Science and Data Committee Report Gary E. Whelan And Andrea C. Ostroff NFHP Science and Data Committee Co-Chairs October 2012

2 2012 Committee Tasks Develop standard effectiveness measures for conservation actions used to address nationwide fish habitat focus areas. Develop and initiate implementation of a strategy to refine the 2010 National Fish Habitat Assessment (Assessment) for 2015 and beyond. Develop and submit a Multistate Conservation Grant (MSCG) Pre-proposal and Proposal (if requested) to fund the Science and Data Strategy.

3 Committee Workplan Outcomes Completed Terms of Reference Completed Science and Data Strategy Established Project Tracking Workgroup –Basic FHP information MSGP pre- and full proposals submitted –Proposal not selected for funding

4 2015 Assessment Strategy Inland Core Plan –Refine and update 2010 Assessment –Add new national connectivity analysis –Demonstration projects to bring in process data –Add lakes and reservoirs to Assessment

5 2015 Assessment Strategy Marine Core Plan –Complete fish/invertebrate stressor analysis Bring coastal analysis to same level as inland –Add new spatial framework for coastal AK analysis –Add new spatial framework for coastal HI analysis

6 Assessment Progress Inland –Adding fish and mussel datasets from underrepresented regions –Addressing spatial and temporal data bias –Examining new ways to determine thresholds –Improving connectivity analysis –Adding new surface mining information –Investigating use of Section 303d data layer –Examining how to incorporate regional datasets –Incorporating lakes and lakesheds into assessment –Adding HI fish information and refining assessment analysis –AK small-scale catchment delineation analysis

7 Assessment Progress Marine –Adding fish and shellfish datasets Focusing on Gulf of Mexico pilot project data Started on data acquisition for Atlantic and Pacific Coasts –Developing new analytical approach –Great Lakes Assessment Moving independently forward with funding from the Great Lakes Fishery Trust and GLBFHP

8 2013 Science and Data Priorities Refine committee membership Catalog and review FHP assessments –$20,000 to fund one Science and Data Committee meeting – NFHP Board Funding Develop data transfer methods and begin to embed detailed FHP data –$197,000 for applications developer, metadata specialist and system support – In-kind USGS

9 2013 Science and Data Priorities Develop dataflow practices for BMPs in data management and curation using cataloged FHP information –$63,500 to support cataloging data and developing BMPs – In- kind USGS Continue refining inland assessment following core plan –$151,000 to support assessment development – USFWS –$42,300 for data management support – In-kind USGS Continue refining marine assessment following core plan –$220,000 to support assessment development – In-kind NOAA- Fisheries and NOS

17 D ATA S YSTEM P HASE 2 Resources: FY13 USGS Core Science Analytics & Synthesis providing system architect and developer FY13 USGS Core Science Analytics & Synthesis providing data repository manager to work with FHPs for the next 7 months

18 2013 Science and Data Priorities – Without Resources Incorporation of connectivity, hydrology, and fish and mussel data into the Inland Assessment –Requesting $300,000 for 2 FTEs and multiple workshops Incorporation of connectivity, hydrology, and fish and mussel data along with new analytical approaches into the Marine Assessment –Requesting $150,000 for 2.0 FTEs

19 2013 Science and Data Priorities – Without Resources Development of standardized effectiveness measures for FHP connectivity projects including incorporating fine-scale FHP data –Requesting $206,000 for 2 FTEs Development and attribution of socioeconomics data into the Assessment –Requesting $100,000 for contracted staff

20 P ROJECT E FFECTIVENESS M EASURES W ORKGROUP 2012 Outcomes: Consultation with AFWA – Wildlife Diversity Director Initial contact with Foundations of Success –Scope of work is underway

21 P ROJECT E FFECTIVENESS M EASURES W ORKGROUP Establish workgroup: –2 participants from Science & Data Committee –Participants from project tracking working group –3 representatives from FHPs

22 P ROJECT E FFECTIVENESS M EASURES W ORKGROUP Workgroup process: –Evaluate existing results chains developed for State Wildlife Grants for common conservation actions –Identify gaps specific to NFHP –Develop new measures as appropriate
