This circular is one of a series of Technical Circulars designed to assist in planning watershed restoration projects. Its purpose is to assist local groups (forest licensees, First Nations, community groups, stewardship organizations) to develop and implement integrated, effective, cost-efficient projects at the watershed scale to rehabilitate or restore fishery resources that have been adversely impacted by past forestry practices. The circular provides a standard framework for identifying the needs and opportunities for fish habitat restoration through systematic resource assessments, and for prescribing and implementing effective activities to improve fishery and aquatic resources.
