Data Report on Benthic Sampling on Artificial Island at Campbell River Estuary, 1982-86Microform - 1987
Campbell River, on the east coast of Vancouver Island, is a major salmon producing area and the estuary has been actively utilized by various industries. The Campbell River estuary rehabilitation project was initiated with the construction of intertidal marsh islands from 1981-82, followed by marsh establishment with the planting of cores consisting of 2 dominant species, the construction of a dryland log sorting facility and the removal of debris and bark from those areas usually used for sorting. Coordinated studies for 1982-86 were developed to help evaluate the biological responses to estuarine rehabilitation. This report presents data from the study of benthic invertebrate communities from islands 1-4 (artificial) and Nunn's Island (reference).
