Biophysical Suitability of the North Coast and Queen Charlotte Islands Regions of British Columbia for Salmonid Farming in Net Cages

Microform - 1992
Rate this:
This report evaluates the biophysical suitability for net-cage salmon farming of nearshore areas on the Queen Charlotte Islands and the British Columbia north coast. The base biophysical information was obtained by interviews with local experts and mariners, examination of extensive oceanographic data records, and reviews of reports, files, and other written records. Data on 15 factors affecting fish farm siting were compiled on base maps and each criterion was assigned a ranking from good to not acceptable for fish farming. The report includes a general meteorological and oceanographic overview of the project area, a biological overview of the area as applied to net-cage farming, a description of the study methodology, notes on the criteria employed for zoning analyses, and detailed descriptions and appraisals of the biological capability/suitability of the waterways evaluated. Areas and resources requiring further study are also appraised.
