Audience:  Government and Public

The Seton River is subject to wide fluctuations in discharge. The Seton River remains a bottleneck during high inflow years. The relatively short length of Seton River and fluctuations in discharge are factors that limit the overall productivity of the system for fish. The habitat development for the Lower Seton Spawning Channel has increased the capacity of existing habitats and developed new habitat areas to support populations of historic species in the watershed. Spawning Channel Drawings, and the biological and engineering consultation in kind provided by Department Of Fisheries & Oceans Canada. B.C. Hydros Bridge Coastal Restoration Program provided the Lower Seton Spawning Channel Complexing Project (03.Se.01) with Project Funding
