During the fall-winter period of 1978-79, frequent high intensity rain stormsresulted in extensive mass wasting across much of the Queen Charlotte Islands, with prelimninary surveys indicating that many of the failures wereprobably induced by steep-slope logging. The British Columbia Ministry ofForests and Lands, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Parks,and Canada Department of Fisheries and Oceans implemented the 5-year Fish/Forestry Interaction Program, initiated in 1981, to resolve issuesconcerning the effects of steep-slope logging and develop prescriptivesolutions for avoiding or minimizing landslide damage. This report presentsthe results of an investigation carried out to compare the amount and type offish rearing habitat present in streams with and without mass wasting andexamines the changes in quality and quantity of salmonid rearing habitatattributable to mass wasting. Where appropriate, differences attributed tologging alone have been isolated and discussed, although assessing loggingimpacts per se was not the focus.Islands, with prelimninary surveys indicating that many of the failures wereprobably induced by steep-slope logging.
