Fritts, A.K., and Knights, B.C., 2020, 2017-2018 Telemetry data for Asian carp and native fish species at Lock and Dam 19 in the Upper Mississippi River Basin: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/P9HOPS3O.

Summary

This dataset includes information derived from a Vemco telemetry array located at Lock and Dam 19 on the Mississippi River near Keokuk, IA. Ten fish species, comprised of both native and invasive species, were detected with this system. Lock Queue Reports, which detail the daily lock operation for river traffic, were obtained from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Temperature data were recorded on the Vemco receivers and stage height data were obtained from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Six worksheets are included in this file, including a meta-data sheet that describes the datasets, provides variable names, and associated units of measure.

Purpose

Data were collected to evaluate the following objectives: 1) use an acoustic telemetry array at Lock and Dam 19 to study the timing (i.e. seasonal and diel) and behavior of Asian carp movements within and around this lock system, 2) evaluate the relationship between fish presence in the array (challenges) and environmental factors (e.g. flow, temperature, barge passages), and 3) relate fish passage events through the lock to operations of the lock for river traffic. These data will be used to design and evaluate the potential effectiveness of a deterrent in this location in the event that testing one is authorized.
