Type: Report (published)

Description:
Catalogue of 34 Clayoquot Sound streams which provides information on: location, physical characteristics, forest cover, tenure status, biogeoclimatic variants and relative abundance of salmonid species. This catalogue was designed to provide a single source of the information considered essential to initial practical study designs for future fish/forestry research.

Title: Length of Breeding Life of Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)

Year: 1985

Author(s): Eric P. van den Berghe; Mart R. Gross

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Since Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) die on the breeding grounds after spawning, duration of individual life may affect survival of deposited eggs. In addition, breeding life of both sexes has implications for estimates of size of spawning populations. We therefore examined the contributions of body size, population density, water level, season, and year to length of breeding life in individual coho salmon (O. kisutch). Age 3 breeding males and females lived an average of 9 days (range, 2-30 days), and 2-year-old "jack" males averaged 8 days (range, 2-21 days). Sixteen percent of the variance among age 3 males and 44% of the variance among females could be explained by the variables examined. Density of adults made a significant negative contribution to life-span, while water level, season and year were insignificant. Body size was the most important variable in explaining breeding life-span, being positively related and accounting for 10% and 35% of the variance in 3-year-old males and females, respectively. In contrast, none of these variables explained the observed variation in jack male breeding life. The differences between the sexes and between 2- and 3-year-old males are consistent with levels of competition on the breeding grounds. We show that the results on individual body size and breeding life span can be used to offset biases in population estimates.

Title: Gabion Evaluation for Salmonid Enhancement in a Landslide Impacted Stream on the Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia

Year: 1984

Author(s): Herbert D. Klassen

Type: Report (published)

Description:
"This paper may be of interest to foresters, fish biologists, and fisheries managers alike. The major purpose of the paper was to evaluate one method of rehabilitation of a debris-torrented stream, with respect to fish production. Guidelines for the gabion installation were included, as was a benefit-cost analysis." Paper of the Fish Forestry Interaction Program.

Title: Female size and nest depth in coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)

Year: 1984

Author(s): Eric P. Van der Berghe; Mart R. Gross

Type: Journal Article

Description:
Nest depth was strongly correlated with female size in coho salmon. Since nests of different-sized females are at different depths, they are differently vulnerable to destruction by floods and to other females competing for the same nest sites.

Title: Coastal Waterfowl and Habitat Inventory Program: Summary Report Appendices

Year: 1982

Author(s): R. A. Hunter, Terrestrial Studies Branch, BC Ministry of Environment; L. E. Jones, Ducks Unlimited

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: This document is one result of a three-year program designed to evaluate coastal wetlands of British Columbia. It is intended to provide a reconnaissance level assessment of the biological attributes of tidal wetlands and indicate social factors, developmental pressures and opportunity for rehabilitation and enhancement associated with them. To date, 403 wetlands have been assessed. Of these the majority are estuarine areas although selected sloughs, mudlats and freshwater coastal lowlands were included. Ratings for the various wetlands were determined by Rodget Hunter, Ken Summers and the following BC Fish and Wildlife Branch staff: Davies, Harding, Burgess, Cox, Swatcaviatcz, West, Beets, Edie, van Drimmellen. The primary purpose of this evaluation program was to indicate the relative importance of individual coastal wetlands of the province with respect to preservation, protection and enhancement. Potential uses of this information area: 1. land-use planners within various provincial government ministries 2. natural resource managers 3. agencies and private organizations involved in acquisition and/or protection and preservation of wetlands.

Title: Notes on Some Pelagic Birds of the Coast of British Columbia

Year: 1942

Author(s): Patrick W. Martin

Type: Journal Article

Description:
In the past few years the author has spent the months from early spring until late summer engaged in commercial salmon trolling along the south and central parts of the coast of British Columbia. The areas covered in particular in this work include the west coast of Vancouver Island from Barkley Soun north to Cape Scott and the mainland coast from Queen Charlotte Strait north to Laredo Sound, as shown on the accompanying chart. During the fishing season it was not possible to make regular observations of the birds in the district, because of the necessity of following the migrations or runs of fish which are by no means regular. In consequence, one seldom finds himself in the same area on the same date in consecutive years. As a result, the large number of ornithological notes that have been accumulated are more or less disconnected. From these I have selected the following in the hope that they will be of interest to the reader and contribute something to the small store of knowledge we have pertaining to pelagic birds in these waters. Specimens were taken whenever time and weather permitted or whenever specimens were necessary for purposes of definite identification. I only regret that more actual collecting was not possible. With one or two exceptions all specimens taken are in the collections of the Provincial Museum, Victoria, BC. The figures following the names of the birds are the museum catalogue numbers.

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Consideration of the potential of anadromous salmon as biological indicators of state changes in marine or aquatic environments suggest they exhibit a variety of strengths and relatively few weaknesses (as indicators).
