Lake Name Abbreviation

Jurisdictions

Which state/province has management authority over the portion of lake where the fish were stocked. It is possible for an agency to stock outside of their normal jurisdiction (partnerships, etc), so double check this. Generally, jurisdiction can be thought of as the waters of a lake within the bounds of a state or province (e.g. "The Michigan waters of Lake Superior", "The Ohio waters of Lake Erie.")

Strains

There has been an effort to clean up the various "strains" reported in order to make the list more concise and accessible, and to be consistent between agencies, regions, and species. Historic, agency specific codes ("Raw Strain") have been grouped into to a more general, informative code in the "Strain" field that is used in all visualization and summaries in the application.

Many of older strain codes have been inactivated and will not appear in upload templates. If your agencies has recently started stocking one of these strains, please submit a request to have it reactivated.

Life Stages

The lifestage of the fish that are stocked in an event (adult, yearling, etc).

Abbreviation Description
a age-2 or older
e egg
f fingerling, age-0
ff fall fingerling, age-0
fry fry, age-0
sf spring fingerling, age-0
suf summer fingerling, age-0
u unknown
y yearling, age-1

Yearling Equivalents

This table contains values which are used to scale the number of fish in a stocking event to a consistent metric of 'yearlings', often referred to as yearling equivalents. These values are based on estimated or expected survival rates given the species and lifestage that was stocked. For instance, fall fingerling lake trout have been shown to have a survival rate of approximately one third of that for lake trout stocked the following spring as yearlings, and as such 3 stocked fall fingerlings are the equivalent of 1 stocked yearling. In this exaxmple, the yearling equivalent value for fall fingerling lake trout is 0.333. Published or generally accepted values have been used where they are available. For other species and lifestage the a factor of 10 was used for each successive lifestage.
