Title: Amphibians and Fish Within Wetlands of the Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve Region 2012-13

Year: 2014

Author(s): Barbara Beasley

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
We gathered information about the distribution of two species of aquatic-breeding amphibians. Red-legged frogs (Rana aurora) and Northwestern Salamanders (Ambystoma gracile) relative to the presence of native species of fish, in particular Coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch), Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarki clarki) and Three-spined Stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) in natural and restored/created freshwater wetland habitats. The Red-legged Frog and Cutthroad Trout are blue-listed species in British Columbia and the former is also federally listed as a Species of Special Concern. Our ultimate aim is to gather information that will help us learn how to manage and restore wetlands in ways that provide productive habitat for both fish and amphibians. We focused our project at wetlands within and adjacent to the Lost Shoe watershed on the Kennedy Flats near Ucluelet, BC. Many fish streams in the Kennedy Flats damaged by poor logging practices in the past are undergoing restoration. Improving fish access to Swan Lake, a 4-ha wetland that currently has no fish, has been a controversial project because Swan Lake has one of the highest counts of breeding Red-legged Frogs recorded in BC. It has been suggested that restoration of fish access to Swan Lake will cause a reduction in the breeding population of Red-legged Frogs and other amphibian species, but the magnitude of the reduction is unknown. Our objectives were to (1) collect baseline data on the abundance of egg masses and larvae of Red-legged Frogs and Northwestern Ssalamanders at Swan Lake to compare to abundance patterns after fish return in the future, (2) compare the relative abundance of egg masses and larvae of Red-legged Frog and other amphibians in wetlands with and without fish, and (3) document water quality variables that could limit the abundance or duration of fish presence in Swan Lake and other wetlands.

Title: Kennedy Watershed Restoration Project

Year: 2014

Author(s): Jessica Hutchinson; Lily Burke; Warren Warttig

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
The Kennedy Flats Watershed is located in Clayoquot Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. Much of the watershed was logged between 1950 and 1980. Logging practices of the time were not designed to protect wildlife or fish habitat, and as a result many of the streams in the area have reduced fish access, poor water quality, and lack the necessary characteristics to support healthy and diverse wildlife populations. Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS) initiated the Kennedy Watershed Restoration Project in 1994 to address the conditions affecting wildlife and wild salmon productivity. Since that time, CWFS restoration crews have been working to restore the hydrological and ecological functions of the watershed. ...

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."

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.

The Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations have passed a notice of eviction to Interfor, advising the logging company to leave the nation's traditional territory in Clayoquot Sound.

Title: Hishuk ish ts'awalk - All things are one: traditional ecological knowledge and forest practices in Ahousaht First Nation's Traditional Territory, Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia.

Year: 1998

Author(s): Robin Yvonne Smith

Type: Academic Thesis

This thesis investigates the significance of traditional ecological knowledge to forest use and management in Clayoquot Sound BC, with specific reference to the traditional territory of the Ahousaht First Nation (one of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations on the west coast of Vancouver Island).
