Invasive Fish in the Cariboo Webinar - Dec 19

Invasive Fish Species in the Cariboo: Priority Species & Impacts.

Date: December 19th, 2017

Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

Presenter: Russ Bobrowski, Fisheries Biologist, Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations
 
In this webinar, participants will learn about the importance of the fishery to the Cariboo region, which has the highest participation rate of active anglers in BC. There are over 700 lakes with game fish values and four significant river fisheries. Russ will focus on five invasive fish species that are now present in the region: Small mouth bass in Beaver Valley, Goldfish in Dragon Lake, Flathead minnows and Pleco/Plecostumus in Milburn Lake, and Pacu in Williams Lake. The significant impacts these fish have on native fish stocks and ecosystem biodiversity will be outlined, containment barriers that are in place in some locations will be identified, and different eradication treatments including capture and the use of rotenone will be discussed.
