Assessing Fish Restoration in the Puntledge River Watershed

Chinook Salmon: James Baxter

Assessment of Past Puntledge River Restoration Projects

The K’ómoks Guardians will assess the physical and biological performance (juvenile use, adult spawning and incubation survival) of side‐channels and restored habitat in the Puntledge River, to determine whether they are continuing to provide stable and high‐quality spawning and rearing habitat for Puntledge River priority species (Coho, Chinook, Pink, Steelhead, and Trout). The project will focus on three side‐channels that were the focus of past FWCP projects in the watershed: Powerline, Forbidden, and Bull Island side‐channels.
