Title: Eelgrass and fish assemblage properties as indicators of biotic integrity in the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve.

Year: 2012

Author(s): Cliff Robinson; Jennifer Yakimishyn

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The conservation of biological diversity within the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve (CSBR) is a key element needed to drive the production of ecosystem services for long-term sustainable use by local communities. The main objective of this study was to develop a simple framework for the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust (CBT) to assess fish diversity in eelgrass meadows using a multimetric approach. Eelgrass (Zostera marina) was chosen as a focal habitat because it is globally considered to be one of the most ecologically important coastal habitats providing a variety of commercially, recreational and ecologically important fish species with outstanding feeding and growing potential, and shelter from many piscivorous and avian predators. This study evaluated three eelgrass metrics (water column nitrate concentration, leaf area index, and epiphyte load) and 12 metrics describing fish assemblage species composition, assemblage abundance, proportion of indicator species groups (e.g., fishery species), nursery function, and trophic function. The abundance of one resident iconic species, the Bay pipefish, was also considered. Metric values for eelgrass and fish assemblages were determined for 6 meadows sampled by the CBT in 2008 and 2011, and compared to metric values derived for 22 meadows sampled in Clayoquot Sound (CS) by Pacific Rim National Park Reserve from 2004-2012. The framework allows for evaluation of eelgrass and fish assemblage metrics by comparing CBT meadow values to the distribution of natural variability observed in metric values from 114 observations made elsewhere in Clayouqot Sound. If 3of 12 fish metrics (one quarter) for each CBT meadow fell below the 10th percentile of the 114 CS observations then potential impairment in the fish assemblage was considered. Overall, two major conclusions were made from this analysis and can contribute to CBT vital signs monitoring. First as of 2011, the 6 CBT meadows appear healthy because none of the eelgrass metric values were found near the thresholds for potential impairment. Second, five out of six fish assemblages appeared in good condition in 2011, but CBT Meadow Bawden Bay had 3 out of 12 fish metrics fall below threshold values and it should be re-sampled to confirm for potential impairment. Overall, the limited eelgrass sampling by CBT has demonstrated that meadows are healthy and likely functioning within natural variability. Two major recommendations were made: 1) continue to sample the 6 CBT meadows to build a long term understanding of temporal variability in fish diversity, and 2) map eelgrass distribution and continue to sample fish assemblages in CSBR to better describe and understand the spatial variability in meadow structure and function. Overall, the framework presented will aid the CBT in monitoring the vital signs of fish diversity in ecologically important eelgrass ecosystems.

Title: Which Whales Were Hunted? Genetic Species Identification of Bones from Traditional Whaling Sites on Vancouver Island

Year: 2012

Author(s): Stephanie Beland

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Archaeological evidence and oral history suggest that active whale hunting by the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations of Vancouver Island is a large part of their traditional culture. What is not clear is which species was the preferred target. Some data suggest that the primary target was gray whales (Eschrichtuis robustus), whereas other sources of information suggest that the hunt targeted a mixture of gray and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). Addressing this issue is of increasing importance due to the interest of some traditional groups in resuming their hunts, now that these two species are recovering from industrial whaling. Here, I address this issue through the genetic analysis of bones recovered from historic whaling sites. Samples were collected from a range of sites, the DNA extracted, and species identification was based on sequence analysis of two regions of the mitochondrial DNA (the control region and the cytochrome b gene). I was able to successfully obtain DNA from over 90% of the bones, and the data suggests an approximate 50:50 ratio or gray and humpback whales in the traditional hunts. Further sampling, across a wider range of traditional sites, is needed to address regional difference in preferred species. These data demonstrate the great promise of this approach for informing management decisions regarding the resumption of these traditional hunts, and will also lead to an improved understanding of this aspect of Canadian history and culture.

Title: Summary of the Implementation of Keystone Recommendations of the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel

Year: 2011

Author(s): Barbara Beasley

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
"In 1995, the government of BC adopted the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel's recommendations for sustainable ecosystem management in Clayoquot Sound. The recommendations prescribed a broad range of forest planning and management activities including involvement of community and First Nations, inventory and assessment, establishing a reserve network, variable retention silviculture, logging operations, monitoring and adaptive management, and education and training. Government, and, in turn, industry, were primarily responsible for implementing the recommendations. The purpose of this report is to review the progress of implementation in 2010, fifteen years after adoption."

Title: Sustainable Foreset Management Plan: Tree Farm License 57, Timber Licenses (T0831, T0834, T0837, T0840 & T0846) & Tree Farm License 54 (Portion Inside Clayoquot Sound)

Year: 2011

Author(s): Derek Drake

Type: Other

Description:
Executive Summary: This document is a Sustainable Forest Management Plan (SFMP) for Iisaak Forest Resources Ltd. It covers Iisaak and Mamook's complete tenure holdings of approximately 136,450 hectares in Clayoquot Sound, BC. THis area is made up of three basic tenure types namely TFL57 (including Tls inside TFL 57), TFL 54 and TLs (T0831, T0834, T0837, T0849 and T0846) held outside of TFLs. The forest tenure Iisaak manages (TFL54) is owned by Iisaak's parent company Mamook Natural Resources Ltd who has assigned management responsibilities to Iisaak in 2010. The planning framework presente dis subjected to the provisions and conditions of the current tenure license documents, the Forst Act and regulations, the Forest and range Practices Act and regulations, the Forest Practices Code of BC Act and regulations, the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel Recommendations, the official Clayoquot Sound Watershed Plans (established via the Clayoquot Sound Land Use Order, 2008), the Clayoquot Sound Watershed Planning Process and other relevant government legislation and associated regulations. This document is considered to be a dynamic plan with the goal of continual improvement over time. It will be updated and revised on an as needed basis as Iisaak refines its criteria and indicators, management strategies, and operational approaches in its pursuit to better define, measure and monitore the ecological, cultural, social and economic objectives of SFM. At a minimu, the plan will be revisited and updated in its entirety at least once every five years.
