X BIBI – This is the average (n= 1 or 2) of B-IBI scores at the site, for the round of sampling. The Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity (B-IBI) values, were retrieved on 7/13/2016 from the Puget Sound Stream Benthos web page: http://www.pugetsoundstreambenthos.org/. Values are based on genus-species level of taxonomic resolution.
Benthic Index of Biological Integrity (B-IBI) data (mean site score per survey) from Watershed Health Monitoring Surveys conducted by the Department of Ecology during 2009 through 2019. Data from Recovery Regions is intended for the 2020 State of the Salmon Report. B-IBI scores are accessible from Puget Sound Stream Benthos. See https://pugetsoundstreambenthos.org but this file uses a different rating method for "Good/Fair/Poor" that is based on percentiles of BIBI-scores from Department of Ecology reference sites during 2009-2018.
