FSI Species Maps

FSI assessments of Alberta fish species are ongoing in accordance with provincial objectives and priorities.

Below is a listing of priority FSI species. Please refer to the individual species pages for maps and summaries of the FSI findings.

To access related data layer sets for the above listed species, please see the section following.

FSI Spatial Data Layers

Layers and PDF map packages represent the completed FSI assessments for fish in flowing waters.

Provincial FSI feature spatial data layers are available in GIS-usable format that require GIS software such as ESRI® ArcGIS and are provided in WinZip file package.

Non-GIS users can access the tabular data by opening the *.dbf tables files in spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel. These files are represented in the GCS North American 1983 Geographic Coordinate System.

In most cases each species FSI layer has been developed as a single feature class layer. However, in some cases FSI species data may be represented by 2 or more layers (see available read me file).

Metadata has been compiled and embedded within each layer, however non-GIS users may access the metadata by opening the *.html files using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
