During the fall-winter of 1978-79, frequent high-intensity rain stormsresulted in extensive mass wasting across much of the Queen Charlotte Islands,with preliminary surveys indicating that many of the failures were probablyinduced by steep-slope logging. The British Columbia Ministry of Forests andLands, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Parks, and CanadaDepartment of Fisheries and Oceans attempted, by implementation of the 5-yearFish/Forestry Interaction Program, initiated in 1981. This is a study to determine iflarge orgnic debris could be re-introduced into debris-torrented streams toincrease localized pool habitats; or whether or not the increasesin pool habitat would also increase coho overwinter survival and thus cohosmolt production; and to compare the benefits of increased coho smolt production with the costs of replacing large organic debris indebris-torrented streams.
