Assessing Bull Trout spawning in Williston Reservoir
Twenty-four new areas of critical bull trout habitat—including 16 critical spawning zones—have been identified in the Williston Reservoir Watershed, thanks to aerial surveys of almost 400 km of streams and juvenile bull trout sampling. Bull trout depend on access to stream habitat for spawning and rearing. This project, led by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development with funding from the FWCP, provides key data to inform future projects aimed at conserving and enhancing critical habitat for this focal species.
