4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 45 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 by I. K Birtwell( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 41 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
A discussion of suspended sediment in the Takla Lake region : the influence of water discharge and spawning salmon by Canada( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information presented in this paper describes sediment-discharge relations from the first two years of the pre-forestry phase of a multi-year, multidisciplinary fishery/forestry interaction project. The sediment data are to be used to assess sediment modelling with respect to the estimation of pre-forestry sediment budgets, the sampling procedure, and baseline data characteristics in order to improve measurement methodology and data quality in the future. The study area comprised three watersheds in the Takla Lake region of British Columbia, where hydrology is dominated by a snowmelt peak followed by summer and fall low flows when salmon spawning occurs. Fine lacustrine soils are extensive throughout the region and much of the sediment moved by tributaries is likely transported in suspension. Results presented include streamflow and suspended sediment levels, sediment rating curves, and correlations with spawning periods
An update on methods for measuring the intragravel environment of incubating salmon eggs and larvae by Michael J Bradford( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the delivery of oxygenated water to salmonid eggs and larvae buried in river gravel is critical for their survival, intragravel flow rates have been infrequently measured because of the complexity and time-consuming nature of the techniques that have been developed. This paper describes modifications of a previously developed technique that makes use of the dilution of a salt solution from a standpipe buried in the river bed. The new flowmeter is lightweight and enables rapid determinations of intragravel flow. The flowmeter was calibrated in an experimental flume and the report presents functions for the automated processing of field measurements using the device. The report also describes a piezometer for measurement of the hydrostatic head associated with salmon redds
Survival of pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) to adult following 10-D exposure of fry to the water-soluble fraction of North Slope crude oil by I. K Birtwell( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes a study in which salt water acclimated, coded-wire tagged, and adipose-clipped pink salmon fry were exposed to 25-54 or 178-349 micrograms/litre of the water soluble fraction (WSF) of North Slope crude oil. About 30,000 fry in each control, low-dose, and high-dose treatment group were exposed for ten days and then released to Discovery Passage, British Columbia, to complete their two-year life cycle in the Pacific Ocean. The experiment was replicated in three consecutive years (1990-92) and adipose-clipped pink salmon were captured in the commercial fishery. Tag codes were then analysed and assigned to the appropriate hydrocarbon treatment or control group. Results presented include the effects of WSF exposure on growth, hydrocarbon avoidance, cellular morphology, and differential mortality to adulthood
An overview of habitat classification systems, ecological models, and geographic information systems applied to shallow foreshore marine habitats by Clifford L. K Robinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews habitat classification systems offering a set of procedures to identify, delimit, and describe the habitats of foreshore fishes, and ecological models describing relationships between habitat attributes such as vegetation type and fish properties such as biomass. Ecological models include fish-habitat models, which can be divided on the basis of mathematical approaches (index, simple qualitative, complex qualitative, regression, and probability functions) or structural approaches (species- and habitat-specific); trophodynamic models, which describe feeding interactions among fish in foreshore habitats (predator-prey, food-chain, and energy/nutrient flow models); and models that assess the role of specific fishes in terms of energy transfer within a single foreshore habitat, or models which provide a holistic view of how various habitats interact. The report concludes with a discussion on the use and utility of geographic information systems as a tool for developing models and systems for assessing fish habitat productive capacity
Data report on brackish marsh transplant experiments at the Fraser estuary by William Martin Pomeroy( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data are provided on transplant experiments at the Fraser River estuary with five species of marsh plants (Scirpus americanus, S. maritimus, Carex lyngbyei, Salicornia virginica and Distichlis spicata). The following information on plant survival and growth is presented: shoot density, shoot height, survival, rhizome extension, and seed head counts. Data on algal pigments in sediments (chlorophyll a and phaeopigments) as well as organic content, water content, grain size, and interstitial salinity are presented. Data are from January 1979, when the transplants occurred, to August 1980 when observations terminated
Starry flounder (Platichthys stellatus) in Deas Slough, Fraser River estuary, British Columbia by Canada( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A proposal to maintain and increase the depth of the main shipping channel in the lower Fraser River by modifying river flows through the installation of training walls was advanced in 1976. Studies were conducted in 1976 and 1977 to provide pertinent information on fish ecology focusing on Tilbury and Deas Sloughs. This report describes aspects of the ecology of starry flounder in Deas Slough, a permanently wetted, tidally influenced region 10 km from the mouth of the Fraser River, and in adjacent estuarine areas. Twelve sampling sites were selected to represent three areas. Fish were sampled for abundance and distribution, age-structure, size and condition, and effects of water characteristics. The water was tested for temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, oxidation-reduction potential, and water clarity
