Methods and summary data for limnology and food web structure in Osoyoos Lake, B.C. (2005-2013), revised: Fs97-13/1274E-PDF

"In 1994, the Okanagan Nation Alliance approached Fisheries and Oceans Canada with a request for assistance in status and trend assessments to support stock and habitat restoration work focused on Okanagan Sockeye Salmon that appeared to have fallen to historic lows of abundance. In the following years, several collaborative habitat and stock restoration projects were initiated to facilitate rebuilding of the Okanagan Sockeye Salmon population to historic abundance levels. Here we provide a detailed site-description and report on field survey and sample processing methods used on Osoyoos Lake to assess: (1) limnological conditions (temperature, oxygen, water transparency, nutrient concentrations, plankton community structure etc.) in the principal nursery lake, (2) annual to seasonal changes of abundance and biological traits of juvenile Sockeye Salmon, and (3) abundance of other limnetic fish species"--Abstract, p. v.
