FishObservationSite_PT

The FishObservationSite_PT layer describes the locations and attributes of all fish capture and effort activities undertaken by the Resource Mapping and Inventory Group (RMIG) of ADF&G, Division of Sport Fish specific to multiple project areas in Southeast Alaska.  The dataset denotes locations of observations where any species of fish was captured or observed OR where any fish capture equipment was employed, but no fish were captured or observed.  The dataset is intended to work in conjunction with the FishObservationCount table in AK Hydro to provide the associated species information, life-stage information, life history strategy information, a numerical summary of the fish encountered, and the associated dates recorded for each point location.  In this way, the dataset provides absolute and confirmed presence of fish, as well as identifying those locations where fish capture/observation effort was applied, yet no fish were captured or observed.
