Volunteers Needed! Tahsis Beach Seine Project 2022
Join the NSWS as we monitor the Tahsis River Estuary this spring and aid in coast wide efforts to determine where and when juvenile salmon use this valuable habitat.
· Perform beach seines · ID species of juvenile salmon · Collect biological data · Become familiar with the aquatic creatures in our estuary
This project is meant to help the NSWS provide the community of Tahsis an opportunity for engagement and hands-on-learning about the habitat in our local estuary and the species that rely on it, as well as collect spatial and temporal data on out-migrating salmon smolts to satisfy data gaps in the multi-stakeholder West Coast Vancouver Island Marine Risk Assessment being led by West Coast Aquatics.
Meet at 9:30am at the West Bay Beach parking lot on the following days:
May 5th May 19th June 2nd June 16th
Please reach out to the NSWS with any questions or if you are interested in volunteering, and visit the Facebook Event to stay up to date.
