Objective(s): This project is to meet the requirements of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Sable and Two Rock Lakes will be lost through the course of mining activities and the scientific collection of data related to the fish population has been identified as an important activity that needs to be completed. The objective of the fish-out program is to provide scientific data to; 1) quantify fish production, fish habitat, and productivity of the intermediate trophic levels (primary and secondary producers); 2) establish linkages between fish habitat and fish productivity; 3) establish a reference database through which comparisons among lakes can be conducted; 4) verify preliminary sampling program data on fish abundance and community structure with a complete fish census.
