British Columbia's streams are the lifeblood of our fisheries, because they play such a major role in the survival of a wide variety of fish. Some fish spend their whole lives in streams, some return to them from the sea. Streams are home, spawning grounds and rearing areas for most of our fish species. On our field trips to different types of streams, we saw evidence of all the life they support and how vulnerable they are.
Thousands of BC streams flow from glaciers, down mountains, out of lakes, through forests, across grasslands and farms, and past our own back doors - always finding a path towards the sea. They may be icy rivulets of clear mountain water, productive streams that spill from lakes, or tributary creeks that pour into rivers.
