Summary, etc.:
This paper describes the current status of coho salmon habitat in a stream on the east coast of Vancouver Island, an area subjected to increasing pressures from encroaching urban development, agriculture, and forestry practices. Current conditions are compared to those of 20 years earlier as recorded by Hamilton (1978). The paper begins with discussion of the methods used to determine spawning distribution, summer juvenile abundance, winter juvenile distribution, and smolt production, and on the use of a geographic information system for mapping habitat. Results are then presented on coho habitat values associated with spawning, summer rearing, and winter rearing, arranged by sub-basin in the Black Creek watershed.
