Report submitted to FWR instructor Bob Gunn. Submitted by Angela Negenman and Kathleen Churcher. The Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD), in partnership with the Seymour Salmonid Society, has created four off-channel salmonid enhancement sites of over 45 000m2 of habitat within the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) located in North Vancouver in the Seymour River watershed. Little data have been available to date on the productivity of the enhancement habitat, as it has yet to be regularly monitored. This poses a problem for the GVRD and Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) in evaluating their projects and planning future enhancement in this watershed. In order to rectify this deficiency, from September 2004 to January 2005 two of the four enhancement sites were assessed for abundance of juvenile fish, adult salmon escapement and water quality. May 2005.
