Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Raw daily count data for each year and river combination. Column "river" provided the name of the river or weir where data were sampled and "year" provides the year in which sampling occurred. Column "count" provides the number of pink salmon that migrated upstream through the weir on the date given in column "day_of_year" (as Julian date). Column "original notes" provides any notes originally recorded by weir staff, and often denotes problems with weir function, such as early removal or flooding. Column "cumulative_count" provides the cumulative sum of pink salmon that have migrated upstream so far in that river thus far in that year. As detailed in the supplemental information accompanying the article, this dataset is a compilation of data downloaded from publicly available datasets, published papers, or provided to us from personal contacts. They were originally collected by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G; provided by Mark Witteveen, Leon Shaul, or downloaded from the ADF&G website), Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO; provided by David Peacock), Nisga'a Fisheries and Wildlife (provided by Edward Desson & Richard Alexander), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Please refer to table S1 for the specific data source for each river.
