Development of a Resident Trout Fishery on the Adam River Through Increased Habitat Productivity: Final Report of the 199297 Project Wilson, Gregory

Abstract: The Adam River, located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, was fertilized to examine the feasibility of low-level fertilization as a method of increasing resident fish (native rainbow and introduced brown trout) populations in an oligotrophic river. A pre-fertilization assessment was conducted in 1992-93 with liquid phosphorus- and nitrogen-based fertilizers added during the summers of 1994-97 to meet a target instream concentration of 5g-PL^-1d 8.4 g-NL^-1. Each summer, field measurements of water flow, temperature, nutrient concentrations, chlorophyll a accrual, invertebrate biomass and taxonomy, and fish abundance, size and age distribution took place in a treatment reach (T2), and two upstream control reach reaches (control and T1). June to September water temperatures averaged 14C with monthly average flows decreasing from 11 to 2 m3/sec, respectively. Water chemistry analyses indicated there was no increase in nutrient concentrations within the fertilized reach, and chlorophyll a biomass accru
