A technician was hired to undertake the background research and fieldwork for the Alouette River's feeder streams. Field activities included groundproofing tributary locations where necessary, establishing species presence by means of electroshocking, general habitat assessment, and identification of habitat enhancement opportunities.

The South Alouette tributaries examined during this study ranged from McKenney Creek in the west to Alouette Lake in the east. North Alouette tributaries ranged from Cattell Brook in the west upstream to UBC Research Forest. This included Anderson Creek (Blaney Creek tributary). Protected areas such as Golden Ears Park and UBC Research Forest were not inspected during the study due to time constraints and the fact that the primary objective of the study was to identify those tributaries which have either been impacted or face the potential threat of future impacts. Fish species found in the tributaries include Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Mountain Whitefish, Steelhead and Eastern Brook Char.
