Objective(s): This study is to identify existing habitat characteristics of the potential and existing stream and pond crossings of the Highway #3 reconstruction project. The study is to target specific data requirements of Department of Fisheries and Oceans to allow for the assessment of fisheries resources so that can complete their mandate for this project as a responsible authority.

Project Description: This study is to identify existing habitat characteristics of the potential and existing stream and pond crossings of the Highway #3 reconstruction project. Field studies will involve the identification of fish habitat characteristics, the potential identification of present fish species in those systems that suggest fish habitat is present by using seine netting techniques. Background data search will focus on previous studies associated with the larger aquatic systems to be crossed by the Highway alignment.
