Examples of BCCF fisheries projects currently in progress include:

 

Campbell River/Elk Falls Gravel Replacement

BCCF conducts habitat restoration in the Campbell River by re-introducing spawning gravel in Elk Falls Canyon where it no longer receives natural upstream gravel recruitment due to the presence of BC Hydro’s John Hart Dam.This project is conducted in partnership with the BC Ministry of Forests Lands, Natural Resources, and Rural Development, as well as BC Parks, with support from the BC Fish and Wildlife Compensation program   

Comox Lake Cutthroat Trout

BCCF is conducting population and life-cycle research regarding coastal cutthroat trout in Comox Lake in partnership with the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resources, and Rural Development, and with support from the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund

Cowichan Chinook and Coho Studies

BCCF is conducting life-cycle and predation research on Cowichan River Chinook and coho salmon stocks in partnership with Cowichan Tribes as well as Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), with support from the Pacific Salmon Commission

Cowichan and Koksilah Riparian Restoration

BCCF is conducting the restoration of riparian habitats on the Cowichan and Koksilah Rivers in partnership with Cowichan Tribes, with support from the Coastal Restoration Fund (DFO)

Cowichan Lake Lamprey Spawning Surveys

Cowichan Shoreline Stewardship Project

BCCF is managing the restoration of riparian habitats on Cowichan Lake and upper Cowichan River in partnership with the Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society as well as Cowichan Tribes, with support from numerous sources including the Coastal Restoration Fund (DFO) and the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund

Cowichan Steelhead Population Dynamics

Gold River Steelhead Decline Investigations

Steelhead stocks in the Gold River have recently plummeted and BCCF is conducting research in an attempt to learn more about the status of these populations and ecological factors that may have affected them.This project is being conducted in partnership with the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resources, and Rural Development with support from several sources, including, the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund
