Two major studies of fish/forestry interactions have been conducted in coastal British Columbia over the last 25 years. The Carnation Creek Experimental Watershed Program, located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, began in 1970 and is currently the longest-running investigation of the effects of forestry practices on a coastal stream ecosystem in North America. The second initiative, the Fish/Forestry Interaction Program (FFIP) on the Queen Charlotte Islands, began in 1981. About 30 watersheds were included within this program which focused on the effects of landslides on channel morphology and fish habitat, as well as on watershed rehabilitation techniques and silvicultural treatments. Both studies were conducted in similar environments, but each used a different experimental design. The case-study and synoptic approaches have together provided an opportunity to understand ecological responses both over very long time periods and for diverse geographic conditions and logging histories. The purpose of this workshop was to integrate the findings from these two fish/forestry interaction programs.
