Contributing Authors: Trumbley, Michael; Plysiuk, Nicole
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
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), and Fish and Fish Habitat Inventories (FFHI) to determine fish presence. As a result of the pre-field review, International Forest Products Limited, Adams Lake Lumber Division, selected eighteen culvert crossings for further field assessment1.
This project involved the identification of nine non-natural barriers (culverts) and one
partial barrier to fish passage. Five high risk sites that are full barriers to fish passage are recommended for replacement in addition to one low risk site, which is a vehicle ford and is a barrier to fish passage.
