Metadatabase view - dataset: Shoreline fish distribution in Italian lakes assessed by electrofishing

General information

dataset entry ID:
FWM_20
name of the dataset:
full name of the dataset:
Shoreline fish distribution in Italian lakes assessed by electrofishing
full name of the datast (original/national language):
Distribuzione della fauna ittica lungo il litorale di 25 laghi italiani
dataset short name:
Shoreline fish distribution in Italian lakes
type of dataset (more information):
species distribution data
data type:
point data/observation data
short description of the dataset/summary:
The dataset includes data on fish species distribution along the shoreline of 25 Italian lakes and reservoirs achieved by point abundance standardised electrofishing. Data were obtained between 2007 and 2014. The database offers a detailed description of the biodiversity of fish communities in the Italian regions of Piedmont, Lombardy, Trentino-Alto Adige and Sardinia including both natural lakes and reservoirs.
short description of the dataset/summary (original/national language):
Il dataset include le informazioni sulla distribuzione della fauna ittica nella zona litorale di 25 laghi italiani. Le informazioni raccolte sono basate su campionamenti effettuati con elettrostorditore da una barca, condotti seguendo la riva di 25 bacini italiani.

sample specifications:
specification of method(s) used for sampling and sorting:
The electrofishing device was a built-in-frame EL64GII (Scubla Acquaculture, 7,000 W, 600 V, DC current) set up with a copper cathode (width 2.5 cm, length 300 cm) and a steel ring anode (thickness 0.8 cm, diameter 50 cm). The Point Abundance Sampling Electrofishing (PASE) method (Copp & Garner, 1995; ISPRA, 2014) was used in which the anode is dipped for 20 s at each sampling point. The number of points depended on lake size and habitat complexity.
