Data set containing avian influenza A virus (IAV) sampling information for Emperor Geese in Alaska, 2015-2017. The data are in three tables: 1) collection data and IAV screening results from fecal samples at several sites in southwestern Alaska, 2) results of blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (bELISA) tests for IAV antibodies in blood serum collected from nesting female Emperor geese near the Manokinak River on the Yukon-Kuskokwim River Delta, and 3) results of influenza virus microneutralization assays to test for the specific IAV subtypes in the Manokinak samples.
