A Fisheries Inventory of the Gosnell Creek Watershed

The Gosnell Creek watershed is a pristine wilderness area which has high fisheries and wildlife values. It has been recognized by several government agencies as a unique area and this has resulted in the creation of a planning format called the Gosnell Special Planning Area. Although 3 previous studies have been done on the Gosnell, more information was required so Northwood Pulp and Timber and the Fish and Wildlife Branch agreed to jointly undertake another fisheries inventory. The main objective of the study was to obtain detailed fisheries information which could be incorporated into Northwood’s long term development plans. The project was completed in a total of 6 field days occurring in June, August and September, 1980. In addition to overhead flight observations of previously unsurveyed creeks, a total of 17 detailed sample points were done. In total, 38 sites have been intensively sampled within the Gosnell watershed to date. This report, along with 2 complimentary maps, includes information from all previous studies.
