Abstract: Bull Trout is a large salmonid which is broadly distributed across freshwater basins across B.C.. It occurs in almost every major watershed and its sensitivity to habitat perturbations and its broad distribution makes it an important indicator of freshwater biodiversity in B.C. A substantial portion of the global distribution now occurs within the British Columbia. COSEWIC recognized four Designatable Units in B.C. for Bull Trout in 2012. DU1 (South Coast B.C.) and DU2 (Western Arctic) were designated as Special Concern and were listed as Special Concern on Schedule 1 of SARA in 2019. DU3 (Upper Yukon Watershed) was designated as Data Deficient. DU5 (Pacific populations) was designated as Not at Risk. In B.C., Bull Trout is ranked S3S4 by the B.C. CDC and is on the provincial Blue list. Bull Trout is listed as a species that requires special management attention to address the impacts of forest and range activities and/or energy resourc activities under FRPA and/or ERAA on Provincial public lands (as described in the Identified Wildlife Management Strategy). Bull Trout is also recognized by the Freshwater Fisheries Program as a priority freshwater sport fish species as it is highly valued by anglers. Its large size, aggressive piscivorous behaviour and tendency to aggregate make it highly vulnerable to overfishing. There is a recognized need to provide coordinated direction on management of Bull Trout in B.C. This management plan provides guidance for the implementation of regional management actions. It is considered advice to decision makers to enable consistency in management approach while still enabling regional flexibility according to variation in environmental conditions, population status and local preferences. The management goal is long-term maintenance of Bull Trout within its native range at abundance levels capable of maintaining its important ecological role and providing sustainable benefits to society now and in the future.
