Object & Deliverables
This Project is a continuation of ATLAS-01-06 & -08, it’s ongoing purpose was the further sampling of the Crowsnest, Upper Oldman, Livingstone & Castle River drainages plus their tributaries for fish populations and fish habitat data.
The objectives of the Project were two-fold: to collect and store fish population and fish habitat data in a standardized format and to ensure that usable fisheries data was supplied to partners in a timely manner.
In 2002, crews sampled 80 sites over forty-one creeks located within the study area and entered the collected data in a standardized provincial data base (FMIS).
The Study findings are contained in a thirty-seven page report entitled “Co-operative Fisheries Inventory Program, Blairmore District, 2002/2003 Annual Report”, authored by Michael Jokinen and dated February 2003.
Partners in the Project were ASRD – Fish & Wildlife Division, Alberta Conservation Authority, and Atlas Lumber (Alberta)
