August Conservation Update

August has been a busy month this year and you may have noticed the MSA truck out and about with field crews carrying out our electrofishing program and temperature surveys for our cold-water habitat restoration program. Electrofishing began the first week of August and 20 sites have been surveyed so far to assess spring stocking success and the success of beaver dam removal from the fall program of 2017. Almost all of the sites above beaver dams removed last year contain fry, and all sites surveyed that were stocked earlier this year have contained fry. Field technicians will continue to electrofish into September by helping DFO conduct their annual juvenile assessments.
