Factors affecting the production of juvenile sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) in Shuswap and Quesnel Lakes, British Columbia by Jeremy M. B Hume( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four-year cycles in abundance, characteristic of many Fraser River stocks of sockeye salmon, provided an opportunity to study the effects of fry density on sockeye production. The investigators examined juvenile sockeye density, growth, biomass, and survival, and the density and species composition of macrozooplankton over a wide variety of initial (emergent) sockeye densities in Shuswap and Quesnel lakes. The report presents results indicating how density, macrozooplankton, and temperature affect sockeye growth and survival in the lakes
An assessment of the limnological status and productive capacity of Babine Lake, 25 years after the inception of the Babine Lake Development Project by K. R. S Shortreed( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Babine Lake in north-west British Columbia contains most of the total sockeye salmon nursery area in the Skeena River drainage basin. Research carried out in the 1950s and 1960s indicated that the lake's sockeye production was limited by spawning ground capacity. This finding led to creation of the Babine Lake Development Program (BLDP), which resulted in construction of three spawning channels and two flow control structures on two lake tributaries. This report describes & presents results of a study conducted to determine the lake's current trophic status, plankton community structure, and biomass, and to estimate its current rearing capacity for juvenile sockeye. It also investigates the effect of increased escapements & fry densities achieved by the BLDP on lake physics, chemistry, trophic levels, and sockeye diet by comparing current data with similar data collected before & shortly after the inception of the BLDP
Results from a seven-year limnological study of Shuswap Lake, part II : zooplankton by Canada( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains summary data on zooplankton collected monthly (April to November) over 1987-93 from Shuswap Lake, British Columbia. Sampling stations were located in each of the four arms of the lake as well as in Mara Lake. Specimens collected in vertical hauls and at discrete depths were counted, measured, and identified as to genus. Biomass was estimated using body length measurements. Length, density, and biomass for each common taxonomic group as well as total macrozooplankton abundance and biomass are presented in tables by station and date. Seasonal average biomass data are presented for common copepods, cladocerans, and total macrozooplankton by year and station

Acoustics and freshwater zooplankton by K. F Morton( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zooplankton community structure, abundance and biomass in Quesnel Lake, British Columbia, 1985-90 by Cultus Lake Research Laboratory( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zooplankton samples were collected monthly from May to October 1985-88 and again in 1990 from Quesnel Lake, British Columbia Zooplankton were counted, identified as to genus, and measured for length and biomass estimates were calculated using body length measurements. Results are presented in tables showing total zooplankton abundance and biomass, length data, density, and biomass for each toxonomic group
