Objectives for the 2007 field season: i. Investigate habitat in 15 focus streams to identify potential barriers, habitat restoration opportunities, and estimate quantity (linear length) of available habitat. ii. Refine and ground-truth coastal cutthroat trout habitat distribution model used to identify potential cutthroat trout-bearing reaches (Ron Ptolemy). iii. Determine adult population size and composition in three rivers (Englishman, Little Qualicum, and Oyster). iv. Determine juvenile abundance and biomass in selected watersheds through electrofishing. v. Assess water quality and nutrient limitation in focus streams (Cold, Whisky, Woodhus, Center, Morrison, Hunts, Little Oyster, and Little Oyster-Cranberry farm tributary) for potential nutrient addition projects. Brown Trout; Chinook Salmon; Chum Salmon; Coho Salmon; Cutthroat Trout; Dolly Varden; Pink Salmon; Pumpkinseed; Rainbow Trout; Smallmouth Bass; Steelhead
