FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Description:
Abstract:
Small streams survey for salmon presence.
Small streams survey for salmon presence.

Purpose:
To gather information on undocumented streams on the Central Coast of BC, with a focus on the Heltsiuk First Nation Territory.
To gather information on undocumented streams on the Central Coast of BC, with a focus on the Heltsiuk First Nation Territory.

Supplemental information:
Methods: Surveys of undocumented streams with gradients of 20% or less are carried out both in the fall, during salmon spawning, and in the spring, during outward migration of juveniles.  During the fall surveys, crews walk the creek until there is evidence of adults spawning or an obvious fish barrier is identified.  During the spring surveys, gee-traps are set to catch resident and out-migrating juvenile salmon.  For both surveys, salmon species and stream features are assessed (e.g., bank width, substrate type, woody debris) and documented.
