    Log Booms, Seals, and Adult Chinook in Cowichan Bay

    The coastline of the Salish Sea has an extensive history of log storage, which, unfortunately, is not
    without consequence to the environment. Log storage activities, such as the presence of log booms
    in our BC waters, cause cumulative effects which can alter ecosystem dynamics. Log storage has
    left a legacy of habitat degradation, which lasts long after sites are decommissioned. Protected
    bays and estuaries are ideal for log booms but are also critical migratory corridors for juvenile
    salmon during their spring outmigration and as adults returning to spawn; thus we must under-
    stand the impacts of log booms and manage these areas in a way that supports Pacific salmon
    and other species which utilize estuaries and bay ecosystems. This newsletter highlights a project
    that has received support from the Pacific Salmon Foundation, and is being carried out to assess
    whether the presence of log booms increases predation on adult salmon that are returning to
    spawn.

    Now if they only had a GOS on seals and sea lions resting on those log booms .................................................. .............

    Still working on that.
    Some progress, but indeed an uphill battle...
