Computer Assisted Techniques for Standardized Fisheries Data Collection and Analysis

Fisheries personnel of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission have developed a standardized system of collecting, analyzing, and reporting electrofishing and rotenone sample data. The system utilizes microcomputers and custom written Microsoft QuickBasic Version 4.0 programs and dBASE files to compile sample data, generate reports, and store information in a statewide database. This system provides fish managers with a quick method for processing data with in-depth analysis while relieving them of time consuming manual processing of sample data. Processing of data is performed by a centralized computer staff for storage in a statewide database that is easily accessed by non-programmers.
