The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 27 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Method step description:
- Sampling was done in an upstream direction, attempting to cover the width of the channel and a representative selection of micro habitats. Sampling effort was recorded by the timer on the electorshocker (seconds of use). Individual fish caught, identified, recorded, and then released downstream. Unfamiliar species were kept in a bucket and identified at the end of the survey, photographed if necessary then released.
