Little is known about the specific eulachon migration and spawning corridors adjacent to the Port Mann Bridge and within Kwikwetlem territory. As part of the Gateway Program and construction of the new Port Mann Bridge, the Kwikwetlem First Nation and Watershed Watch Salmon Society contracted LGL Consulting and Terra Remote Sensing to investigate eulachon densities, migration and spawning patterns in the area near the new bridge. This initial draft report summarizes LGL’s findings to-date. In the spring of 2009, during the Fraser River eulachon spawning migration further field studies will be conducted that will link the information gathered so far to the preferred eulachon spawning habitat. For more information, see the final report Fraser River, Port Mann Bridge-Douglas Island Eulachon Study, 2009.
