Fishes in MZNA-VERT: baseline freshwater sampling campaignsAcronym: ICHTY-CDSP
This dataset contains ocurrence data and measurements of freshwater fish captured in different locations of Spain under various studies.
All specimens were collected in Spain. Almost half of the individuals were from Aragón (48%) and the rest were scattered through Navarra (36%), La Rioja (13%) and Castilla y León (4.6%). The rivers sampled are tributaries of the Ebro and Duero, on the north of Spain, in the Iberian Peninsula, southern Europe. Their basins flow into Atlantic and Mediterranean seas.
The aim of the present data set is to provide all information of the records of freshwater fishes related with monitoring projects performed by the MZNA personel. Due to the different sources of the samples, an effort to standardize those records has been made in order to share them through GBIF.
Species identification was performed by R. Mirandausing 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 Zoological Museum 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 individuales were identified, measured and released in the majority of cases. In some cases the specimens were not measured or euthanized and deposited on the Zoological Museum of the University of Navarra in labelled jars first with formalin and, more recently, with 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.
