Upper Bulkley Floodplain Habitat: Modifications, Physical Barriers, and Sites of Potential Importance to Salmonids

The Bulkley River upstream of the Morice River has some of the most intense public and private land use in the Skeena watershed. The purpose of this assessment was to document human-induced modifications to floodplain habitat and river channelization, investigate potential barriers to fish migration, and to assess areas of upwelling groundwater in the Upper Bulkley mainstem having potential importance to salmonids. During two helicopter flights, the Upper Bulkley floodplain upstream of Morice River to the headwaters at Maxan Lake was assessed for modifications to habitat, as well as potential locations of ground water intrusion that may be important to salmon. This dataset includes an assessment report and two flight path spatial files.
