Survey results of green sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis) populations in Haro Strait, British Columbia, March 2008, March and August 2009, and March 2010: Fs97-6/3208E-PDF

“This report presents the results of the initial four surveys of a continuing series of Green Sea Urchin (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis) surveys, undertaken jointly between Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and industry (West Coast Green Urchin Association - WCGUA) in Haro Strait, British Columbia, between March 2008 and March 2010. These surveys are complementary to a similar continuing series of Green Sea Urchin surveys conducted in Queen Charlotte Strait, originating in October 1995. Data were collected by SCUBA divers using the transect-quadrat method, and include information on size and abundance of Green Sea Urchins, gonad weight and quality, and on the depth and substrate. The long-term objectives are to assess variability in Green Sea Urchin populations over time to monitor harvest impacts"--Abstract, p. vii.
