Analysis and Priority Identification of Existing Fish Passage Data: Bulkley River Watershed

For this project, existing fish passage information in the Bulkley River watershed located near Smithers, British Columbia, was reviewed in order to prioritize and rank culverts for further assessment and/or rehabilitation. A detailed review and prioritization ranking was conducted for 397 crossings structures identified as requiring a detailed assessment. Eighty-three crossings were rated as high priority for follow up with habitat confirmation assessments and potentially fish inventories. One hundred and thirty-six crossings were rated as moderate priority for follow up with habitat confirmation assessments and potentially fish inventories. One hundred and fifty crossings were rated as low priority for follow up with habitat confirmation assessments and potentially fish inventories and 27 crossings were rated as “no fix” (likely non-fish bearing; follow-up not recommended).
