|In 2008/2009, ECODynamic Solutions (EDS) Inc. was contracted by BC Timber Sales, to conduct fish passage assessments at closed bottom structures within six priority watersheds in TFL 44. The road networks specified for investigation under the Contract were limited to Forest Service Roads (FSR), pre-1995 Road Permit Roads, and Non-Status Roads within the target watersheds. This was the first project on |
Vancouver Island to adhere to the new FIA methodologies for fish passage assessment documented in MacKinnon (2008a and 2008b). Crossings with potential upstream habitat value were targeted for fish passage assessment to ensure habitat connectivity. The priority watersheds were confirmed as valuable fish habitat to all or some of the pacific salmon and numerous resident fish species.
