Slocan Lake Foreshore Fish & Wildlife Habitat Assessment

The “Slocan Lake Foreshore Fish & Wildlife Habitat Assessment, including Foreshore Inventory and Mapping (FIM) and Aquatic Habitat Index (AHI), prepared by Galena Environmental Ltd., dated May, 2011” is now available for download here. If there are any problems with this download please contact us here or at

The report consists of
1) the main report
2) the Appendices B through E &
3) Appendix A the 23 maps covering the lakeshore. Because the maps are such large files (4-5 MB) they have been post individually.

The lake shoreline is colour coded based upon the Aquatic Habitat Index (AHI) described in the FFWHA report. The maps show the foreshore colours but the coding is a bit obscure. The coding is Red = Very highly sensitive habitat Orange = Highly sensitive habitat White = Moderately sensitive habitat Blue = Low habitat sensitivity Gray = Very low habitat sensitivity
