|The Adam River has been severely affected by sediment input from natural and anthropogenic events in and around the watershed. These affects have resulted in negative impacts on fish and fish habitat. The overall objectives of this project were to; • Identify the bottle neck(s) for fish production and • Identify restoration opportunities to increase the productive capacity of the Adam River watershed. In January 2007, a fish habitat assessment was conducted on the lower Adam River. The project was funded by Forest Investment Account (FIA) through BC Timber Sales Strait of Georgia Business Area. Specific objectives of the assessment were to: • Describe channel morphology and important fluvial processes, • Quantify and describe fish habitat, • Identify and quantify negative impacts and disturbances and, • Identify and prioritize habitat restoration opportunities Previous study information, aerial photographs and stream assessments were used to determine areas of concern and potential fish habitat within the Adam River Watershed.|
