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Type: Report (unpublished)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."

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.

Title: Making monitoring manageable: a framework to guide learning

Year: 2009

Author(s): Karen Price; David Daust

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Resource managers, planners, and the public are unified in their calls for monitoring of land-use plans. Unfortunately, many monitoring initiatives fall short of their potential for several reasons: indicators are not explicitly links to objectives, hindering feedback to planning; knowledge if not represented in a manner that facilitates learning; and monitoring priorities are driven subjectively. We describe a framework that links indicators to existing objectives, presenting knowledge as hypotheses about the probability of achieving an objective as a function of various indicator levels. Uncertainty is explicitly included in the models. The framework can be used for management decision support and to prioritize objectives for implementation, effectiveness, and validation monitoring and research. Monitoring priority is determined first by probability of success and uncertainty and then by the importance of an objective. We present a case study for the Babine Watershed, an area in the interior of British Columbia with high resource values and decades of controversy and ineffective monitoring. The framework sifted through existing objectives to focus effort on those most critical to monitor. By concentrating on publicly derived, regionally applicable objectives and strategies taken from existing land-use plans, the framework provided relevant results and enabled rapid feedback.

Title: Multi-species Inventory of Elasmobranchs (Sharks and Skates) in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada

Year: 2008

Author(s): Jennifer Yakimishyn, Pacific Rim National Park Reserve

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Sharks and skates are a group of cartilagenous fish called elasmobranchs that occur in coastal waters of British Columbia. Shark and skate populations are globally declining due to their vulnerability to fishing pressure because they are long-lived, slow to mature and produce few young. Overfishing of top predatory sharks has cascading effects on the balance of marine food webs. Thirteen shark species exist in the marine waters surrounding Pacific Rim National Park Reserve (PRNPR) and the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) has designated six of these species as species at risk. The basking shark is listed as endangered, the sixgill, tope and brown cat sharks are listed as special concern, and the great white and blue sharks are data deficient. In this study, historical and current locations were recorded for all of these species, except the brown cat shark. This project compiled a total of 284 current and historical shark and skate sightings from local community members and organizations such as the Royal British Columbia Museum, PRNPR, and Strawberry Island Research Society. Thirty-seven of these observations occurred within the boundaries of PRNPR and 32 occurred in waters surrounding Gulf Island National Park Reserve (GINPR). Overall, in 2007, 84 elasmobranch observations were made in waters along the west coast of Vancouver Island and consisted of eight species and one unidentified shark species. The highest numbers of sightings were recorded from July to September. Eight surveys of skate egg cases were also conducted in the spring of 2007 and 2008 in the Long Beach Unit of PRNPR. The big and longnose skate egg cases occurred in the highest numbers in February in the Long Beach north area. I compiled all distributional elasmobranch and skate egg case data points into databases (see URL on hard copy) which is available to Species at Risk (SAR) proponents and COSEWIC for status report preparation and review. For this report the distributional data points were used to generate multi-elasmobranch species distribution maps. The elasmobranch distribution database was also input into the NatureServe Kestrel data managements system and therefore is accessible to internal and external government agencies, non-government organizations and members of the conservation community. Future project recommendations include working with local First Nations communities to compile Traditional Ecological Knowledge on elasmobranch species, provide elasmobranch identification training opportunities to local sportfishing guides, continue interview style surveys and on local docks, continue surveys of skate egg cases in Long Beach north area in February, and use communication tools to deliver Species at Risk and elasmobranch information to the local community and adjacent urban centres.
