File Format for Delta Fish Facilities Salvage Monitoring Program

There are three file types under this program element.  The types 
are daily expanded salvage numbers (SALV), daily length measurments 
(LGTS), and daily export rates (ACFT).  The file name structure 
indicates the file type in the first four letters and the years 
covered in the file follows this, with a letter of the alphabet 
(anywhere from a through r) at the end of most file names.
The .txt extention indicates that all files are in comma delimited
ASCII format. 

For example:

     lgts94a.txt - contains daily length measurements for the first 
                   part of the year 1994.
     salv5778.txt - contains daily expanded salvage numbers for the
                    time period between 1957 and 1978.

While there is some variation between files, the maximum number of 
records in any one file is 8000.  Please refer to the file list under 
the DATA link for the size in kilobytes, and the date of 
creation/revision of each file.
