Commentary on the management of fish habitat in northern Canada : information requirements and policy considerations regarding diamond, oil sands and placer mining by I. K Birtwell ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report has been prepared in response to the need for information that will assist the management of fish and their habitat in northern Canada, and especially that relating to exploration and mining for diamonds. Increased exploration and mining activity is occurring across Canada and potential diamond mines have been identified in Nunavut, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec. Diamond mining is currently occurring in the Northwest Territories. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has authorized the elimination or partial destruction of 26 lakes for diamond mining since 1997, and an additional 5 for the metal mining sector. The application of appropriate compensatory and restorative techniques is a fundamental requirement of developments that impact fish and their habitat. This poses an especially significant and unique challenge in northern Canada because of the prevalent climatic conditions and the paucity of applicable knowledge. Although the focus of this report is related to diamond mining in the Arctic, attention is also given to oil sands and placer gold mining; other major industrial activities in northern Canada that impact upon fish and their habitat. One of the main objectives of this report is to identify deficiencies in our knowledge with respect to fish and their habitat in northern Canada, and the implications of habitat alteration and destruction to aquatic systems
Commentary on the management of fish habitat in northern Canada : information requirements and policy considerations regarding diamond, oil sands and placer mining - summary report by I. K Birtwell ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This summary is derived from a detailed technical report which identifies scientific and management information needs that are necessary in order to make consistent and defensible decisions which conform with the intent of the "Policy for the Management of Fish Habitat" ("Habitat Policy", Department of Fisheries and Oceans 1986), and that assist with the facilitation of responsible mining activities compliant with the Fisheries Act. The project was stimulated by increasing mining activities in northern Canada. Compensation and restoration for the destruction of lake and stream habitats pose significant scientific and management challenges, especially so in northern Canada where ecological knowledge and understanding are rudimentary
Commentary on the management of fish habitat in northern Canada : information requirements and policy considerations regarding diamond, oil sands and placer mining - appendix by I. K Birtwell ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report is the Appendix to a detailed technical report that has been prepared in response to the need for information that will assist the management of fish and their habitat in northern Canada, and especially that relating to the exploration and mining for diamonds

A preliminary study of hatchery chinook salmon smolts migrating in the lower Fraser River, determined by radiotagging by N. A Hvidsten ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents results of a study investigating the feasibility of using radio tags to determine the migration routes, patterns of movement, and migration speed of chinook salmon smolts in the lower Fraser River. A specific part of the investigation assessed fish use of two constructed embayments in the river, one on Annacis Channel and another at Richmond Island. The researchers tagged the smolts with Advanced Telemetry Systems Model 392 transmitters (5-milliwatt) and tracked the fish in boats, with positions taken using a global positioning system receiver. Results presented include routes of fish released at Mission, below New Westminster, and between Ruskin and Port Main. Tidal and river current effects on smolt migration are also discussed
