Title: An Experimental Study of Competition for Food Between Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) and the Threespine Sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) in British Columbia Coastal Lake

Year: 1996

Author(s): S. M. O'Neill; K. D. Hyatt

Type: Report (published)

Description:
Evidence supporting the hypothesis that competitive interactions occur between juvenile sockeye salmon and limnetic sticklebacks in oligotrophic lakes was obtained by manipulating abundance, size, and species combinations of fish in enclosures in the limnetic zone of Kennedy Lake, British Columbia. We conclude that in many oligotrophic coastal lakes, where food supplies are limited, sockeye and sticklebacks compete by exploiting the zooplankton communities to their mutual disadvantage.

Title: Longitudinal Distribution of Fish Communities in the Clayoquot River System

Year: 1996

Author(s): Wendy Kotilla

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Summary: This report describes the collection of data in the Clayoquot River system on Vancouver Island, using methodology designed to measure longitudinal changes of fish species found in Pacific Northwest river systems. Four minnow traps were used at each of 19 sample sites at 500 m intervals along the mainstem of the river. This technique provided baseline data for future studies in the Clayoquot River and could be useful throughout the Pacific Northwest. The objectives were to assess fish communities, establish the upper limit accessible to anadromous salmonids, and conduct baseline habitat measurements. Four minnor traps were used to capture fish at each sampling site, a total of eight species were found. Of these, the 4 most common were coho salmon, rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden char. Coho and rainbow dominated the lower Clayoquot River and the upper Clayoquot River to a 3.4 km barrier. Dolly Varden were found exclusively in the upper Clayoquot River, with the highest numbers above the barrier. Numbers of cutthroat were the lowest of the 4 main species, with the most above the barrier. The 3.4 km barrier restricts access to anadromous salmonid migration at most flow levels, resident species were the main component above the barrier. Recommendations for future use of this method include monitoring the CLayoquot River in subsequent years, surveying Clayoquot River tributaries, studying other watersheds, and comparing logged and unlogged systems. Little is known about resident fish species above the barrier, studies into their life histories and function in the ecosystem are recommended. Longitudinal distribution of aquatic insects would complement the fish distribution research.

Title: Potential Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network Sites for Shorebirds in Canada

Year: 1995

Author(s): R.I.G. Morrison; R.W. Butler; G.W. Beyersbergen; H.L. Dickson; A. Bourget; P.W. Hicklin; J.P. Goossen; R.K. Ross; C.L. Trevor-Gratto

Type: Report (published)

Description:
The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN) is an international conservation initiative designed to protect the key habitats and resources used by shorebirds throughout their migration ranges. Many species of shorebirds depend on a chain of critically important sites to complete their annual migrations, and for conservation to be successful, all the links in the chain need to be preserved. This report provides an updated inventory of potential WHSRN sites in non-Arctic areas of Canada. It summarizes information currently available on locations meeting criteria for inclusion in the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network both for a wide range of shorebird species found on migration and for the endangered Piping Plover, Charadrius melodus.

Title: An Observational Study of Black Bears on Jenny's Beach in Shelter Inlet, Clayoquot Sound

Year: 1995

Author(s): Karen Oldershaw

Type: Student Paper

Description:
Introduction: The American Black Bear (Ursus americanus), is an adaptable species, existing in a variety of regions, throughout North America. In the coastal ecosystems of British Columbia, diversity of environments offer abundant habitat to resident bears. In particular, interactions between terrestrial and marine environments produce plentiful food resources in estuaries and intertidal zones. There has been little research conducted on the importance of intertidal habitat to terrestrial mammals, like the Black bear. Herrero (1980) states that, in coastal areas, Black and Grizzly bears readily forage in the biologically rich intertidal zone, where they eat crabs and other marine invertebrates. Research conducted in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska, shows that Black bears congregate along gently sloping beaches in spring and early summer. For the bears of Glacier Bay, beach habitat offers foods such as beach wild rye (Elymus) and sedges. Barnacles (Balanus) are considered an important food item. Modafferi also made observations of Black bear use of coastal marshes and beaches, where bears foraged on grasses and sedges in the spring. For several years, casual observations have been made of Black bears along the shorelines in Clayoquot Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Historical evidence of Black bear use of the intertidal zone is primarily anecdotal. It suggests that such areas are frequently visited by Black bears inhabiting the region. Prevou observations of Black bears along shorelines seem to indicate that most bear activity occurs during periods of low tide, at which time bears appear to forage for extended periods. Foraging behaviou, observed in the past, has focussed on the consumption of shore crabs, eels, barnacles and even starfish. Black bears have also been seen travelling, resting and interacting with other bears. The purpose of this study was to make a preliminary scientific investigation into Black bear use of the intertidal zone at Jenny's Beach, in the northern region of Clayoquot Soun. An observational study was conducted for a period of several weeks in order to compile quantitative data of the bears' daily activities. Qualitative and quantitative descriptions of behaviour were also made throughout the study period.
