Restoring habitat for shore-spawning kokanee in Kootenay Lake
Creating spawning habitat at McDonalds Landing Regional Park: 80 m3 of clean spawning gravel was added to a 50-m-long stretch of water near the shoreline along the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, north of Nelson. It provides new habitat for declining shore-spawning kokanee and reduces the risk of redds being dewatered in the spring. Friends of Kootenay Lake led the project with help from the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development and funding from the FWCP.
