Fishes in MZNA-VERT: distribution of freshwater blenny in the Segre and Susia rivers (Spain)Acronym: ICHTY-MPRS
The river blenny (Salaria fluviatilis) is catalogued as endangered in Spain so the monitoring of the distribution and health of its populations is a good tool for its conservation. This dataset contains records of Salaria fluviatilis and other fish species captured in the Segre and Susia rivers (north of Spain) during two monitoring programs.
All specimens were collected in the Segre river in Ponts and downstream of the Rialb dam (Gualter, Spain) and the Susia river upstream the El Grado dam. Both rivers, Segre and Susia, are tributaries of the Ebro river and finally flow into the Mediterranean sea.
The aim of the present data set is to provide all information of the records of Salaria fluviatilis and other fish species captured in the Segre and Susia rivers (north of Spain) during two monitoring programs.
Species identification was performed by R. Miranda using suitable literature (Maitland & Linsell 1977) and scientific names were validated using the W. N. Eschmeyer’s Catalog of Fishes (Eschmeyer 2014). Specimens were returned to the river or deposited in the Museum of Zoology of the University of Navarra. Each specimen was labelled with a unique collection number. Darwin test software (v3.3 Ortega-Maqueda and Pando 2008) was used to check out possible mistakes in the coordinates, characters and the format of dates.
Specimens were sampled following the procedure described in the Sampling description section. The individuals were identified, measured and released in the majority of cases. In some cases the specimens were euthanized and deposited on the Museum of Zoology of the University of Navarra in labelled jars, preserved with formalin and later in 70% ethyl alcohol. Field data was revised, digitalised and incorporated to the MZNA database (Zootron v4.5, Ariño 1991). The dataset was exported to DarwinCore v1.4 format and revised to correct errors to adequate it to DarwinCore standars. Metadata information was added and the Darwin Core Archive was incorporated to the Spanish GBIF IPT.
