Session Title

Howe Sound's Time is Now: Knowledge and Planning in Action

Description

The Squamish River is located approximately 50km north of Vancouver, British Columbia and flows into the north end of Howe Sound. The Squamish River watershed comprises an area of approximately 3650 km2, and supports 7 species of pacific salmon and trout in the genus Onchorhynchus (Chinook, coho, chum, pink, steelhead, rainbow trout, and cutthroat). Since the mid-1990s efforts have been undertaken to restore salmon habitat throughout the Squamish Watershed and very little has been done in terms of monitoring the effects and impacts on Chinook salmon, which prove elusive to catch with traditional gee traps. The focus of this study is within the Squamish Estuary to identify if hatchery stocks of Chinook Salmon are affecting the growth rate of wild juvenile stocks as well as help determine the effectiveness of the restoration channels on the overall survival of juvenile Chinook.
