Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
As part of the pre-field planning phase, potential culvert sites were selected mainly on the basis of local knowledge, combined with existing inventory data such as Fish Stream Identification (FSID), Fish Habitat Assessments (FHAP), Fish and Fish Habitat Inventory (FFHI) and the fish mapping portion of the Kamloops Timber Supply Area 11 FPCI Project (Snowy River Resources Ltd. 2006/2007) to determine fish presence. As a result of the pre-field review, ninety culvert crossings were selected for further field assessment1. The FPCI assessment units and sites were pre-selected by Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor), Vavenby Division.
This project involved the identification of 19 high risk non-natural barriers (culverts) to fish passage on roads within TFL 18 where fish presence had been confirmed. In addition, eight high priority sites where fish presence had not been confirmed were identified.
