B.C. Fish Habitat Profoundly Impacted by Shoddy Roads
The Forest Pracrices Board board investigated 1,100 road crossings in 19 watersheds and found that only 42 per cent were designed and built in a way that allow fish to pass through. Even in streams considered "important or critical" fish habitat, more than one in four road crossings blocked fish movement.
In the Campbell-Memekay watershed north of Campbell River, the board found that almost one-third of road crossings of important or critical streams blocked fish migration.
